I have a private Facebook group for open minded Christian moms of LGBTQ+ kids. We have more than 1,300 moms in the group and sometimes we send letters to people or organizations we appreciate and support.

This past weekend Colton Haynes was awarded with the Human Rights Campaign Visibility Award. His heartfelt acceptance speech touched our hearts and encouraged us.

More than 400 of us signed a letter to Colton expressing our support and gratitude because we believe people like him are making the world a kinder, safer, more loving place for all LGBTQ+ people to live.

Here is our letter to Colton:

August 30, 2016

 

Dear Colton,

We are part of a large private Facebook group of more than 1,300 moms of LGBTQ+ kids.

Our group, Serendipitydodah for Moms, was created especially for open minded Christian moms of LGBTQ+ kids who want to develop and maintain healthy, loving, authentic relationships with their LGBTQ+ kids.

More than 400 of us are signing this letter because we were moved by your words as you received the Human Rights Campaign Visibility Award this past weekend.

We want to say thank you for being such a kind-hearted and caring person and for using your voice to encourage and bring hope to others. You have encouraged us and given us hope that others will hear your voice and be inspired to have the same kind-hearted and loving spirit you demonstrate.

Your humble and compassionate spirit shone through as you spoke of accepting the award as a promise to LGBTQ+ people; and the hopes and aspirations you shared are what we also hope for our children.

We believe people like you are a catalyst to making the world a kinder, safer, more loving place for all LGBTQ+ people to live and we want you to know you have our support and gratitude.

We wish you the best and hope we can be an encouragement to you.

With sincere admiration and gratitude,
