From Los Angeles to Washington DC, people have recently been coming together across the US for Pride Month. But it hasn't just been a celebration for people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, because people's parents have also been coming out in support of their LGBT children. Moms and dads joined their kids on the streets to celebrate diversity and raise awareness about LGBT issues, including one mom who carried a sign saying "my trans son is a stud" and somebody's father who wore a t-shirt announcing that he was "the proud dad of a smartass gay son."

"I had an amazing day today marching with my child!" wrote one supportive mom on Facebook after attending The Equality March for Unity and Pride. "We were inspired by all of the support! We can not rest until everyone is accepted for who they are!" We couldn't agree more. Scroll down for a collection of heartwarming pictures of parents and their children celebrating love, tolerance, and understanding. (h/t)

Just goes to show, just because you might not "quite approve" of someone's lifestyle doesn't mean you can't love them and be supportive.

This is how it should be! A whole family full of loving and supportive people. Why should anyone be ashamed for which sex a relative loves?! Who the hell decided centuries ago that same sex relationships are wrong??
