Over the years many things happened in my life which opened up my mind about gays and lesbians. Many have no explanation as to why they just prefer the same sex. They have families, they are great parents to their adopted children, yet many still can not accept this fact. People look at them with different eyes. I used to be in that category too. But not anymore now, especially when I have gay and lesbian friends. So the best way to avoid such stares are to join gay travel.
