Famed singer, Belinda Carlisle (yes, you can start singing “Heaven Is A Place on Earth”) is one super supportive parent! Her son, James Duke Mason came out when he was fourteen years old. Carlisle admitted she kept the secret for a few months, before having more discussions about it.
She’s even done a few talks for an organization that supports parents of children who identify as gay! She has even gone on to say that she would have never had it any other way and that she wouldn’t even have known what to do with a straight child. Love the honesty!
The younger of Rory's daughters from his first marriage is Hopie Feek! The country music singer-songwriter's daughter came out after some harrowing circumstances — her mother's funeral. She came out as a lesbian just days after they were mourning the loss of their mother.
Hopie was worried that her dad might reject her notions of coming at first and that he would stop loving her altogether. At first, it was tough for Rory, due to his religious beliefs, but over time he became more supportive of his daughter. Rory noted that the situation of his daughter coming out has taught him how to love unconditionally. Too sweet!
Sean Burke & Braunwyn Windham
Braunwyn Windham-Burke is definitely loving the fact that her son, Jacob, is into drag! It's been a source of fun and entertainment for her and her family during quarantine, which is pretty cute! The teenager, who is one of seven siblings, has certainly paved his own way and molded his own identity for himself.
He loves drag (Jacob even has a drag persona, 'Divine Devon'), has been putting on quite a show for his family, and it's even featured on the Bravo reality show. In one of the episodes, Jacob transformed into his persona for drag with a stunning blue gown and a long, lush blonde wig. Love it!
Zeke, who you may know as the son of basketball Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas, who has also been the official DJ for the NBA All-Star Game, has been on quite a journey with his coming out. The DJ has also been quite vocal and proud to express his feelings about Gay Pride, stating that it is a time of celebration, joy, and remembrance.
He further stated that it’s a time to be grateful for how far things have come. In an interview, Zeke also remarked that the NBA was pretty gay-inclusive. He is lucky to have the support of not only his father but also that of the NBA!
Warren Beatty & Annette Bening
Stephan Beatty, the son of two Hollywood hard hitters, Warren Beatty and Annette Bening was assigned female at birth and initially named Kathlyn Beatty. Later on in their life, they came out as transgender. When he was just a teenager he began his difficult transition, in a full house (with his three other siblings).
His parents were nothing but supportive, with Beatty coming out and saying "He's managed something that's very challenging with great style and great intelligence, he's a revolutionary, a genius…and my hero. He's an articulate, thoughtful person, and I'm very, very proud of him." Love!
