Oakland Tribune: Gay-rights struggles affect kids

This morning, at the close of the Creating Change conference, the local Oakland Tribune ran a story on queerspawn on the cover of the Metro section. It is telling that the only story about the conference in Sunday's paper was about kids of queers. We are becoming increasingly visible while the movment and "mainstream" focus on gay marriage as the issue.

Not particularly groundbreaking or well written, but nonetheless, exciting to get coverage:

"The queens get all the attention. The politicians grab all the headlines. But in the battle for gay rights, the children of lesbian, gay and transgender parents often pay the price."

And note the inclusion of transgender, that is not always included in the media. (Though they did drop off bisexuals.)
