Dear Abby to Recieve PFLAG Award

In July I posted an installment of Dear Abby, where a mother shared her appreciation for a gay son. Jeanne Phillips, who writes under the name Abigail van Buren, or Dear Abby, has become, over the decades, America's conscience. You can't get more main stream. Well... Today, Dear Abby's telling the A.P. that she supports marriage equality.

"I believe if two people want to commit to each other, God bless 'em," the syndicated advice columnist told The Associated Press. "That is the highest form of commitment, for heaven's sake."

"I'm trying to tell kids if they are gay, it's OK to be gay. I've tried to tell families if they have a gay family member to accept them and love them as they always have," she said Friday.
Because of statements like these and her unwaivering bold support of the LGBT community, PFLAG is honoring Jeanne with their "Straight to Equality Award" at their annual convention, to be held later this month.
