I sure do wish my mother was supportive of me, like you are for your son. [To Palin from the mother of a gay son, Viewpoints, Oct. 15]

My mom tells me that I’m going against god for being a lesbian, and that she knows I know it is wrong. We need more parents like you to stand up and say that they know it isn’t a choice. Thank you.

Ms. Triveri, your letter is beautiful. If only everyone would treat others the way they would want to be treated themselves, the world would be a much better place. Your son is a lucky man.

Wow!  I wish my mother had been as understanding and as accepting as you when she found I was gay. You are a beautiful soul, Maria Triveri.
