BLOGMarriage is Our Future: Katy Faust’s Story

Katy Faust lives in two worlds – absolutely committed to the rights of children to be raised by both their father and mother, and absolutely committed and involved in the lives of her LGBT family and friends.

“A lot of people think that you can’t do both,” Katy said. “I’m here to say that not only can you, but you must.”

Katy grew up with her mom and her mom’s lesbian partner – a couple who’ve loved her unconditionally, and have been committed to each other for almost 30 years. If all a child needs is loving, committed parents, shouldn’t that have been enough?

But it’s not, Katy says. “I needed my father. I would not be who I am today without that man . . . cheering me on, encouraging me, being involved from birth through adulthood.”

Katy’s Story


“Now, I’m a mom. And I see my kids with their father … the way my kids connect and love us is different and beautiful and wonderful, and it’s such an injustice to say that kids are fine without one or the other.”

The stories of adults who grew up with LGBT parents, most of whom were involved in same-sex relationships, all have one thing in common—as children they craved the love and presence of their missing mother or father. These courageous men and women are speaking up for marriage so that future generations of children, all of whom deserve both their mom and their dad, will know that they were worth speaking up for.
