This is Katherine Patrick, the 18-year-old daughter of Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, soon-to-be Smith College freshman, MassEquality intern and, oh yeah, a now extremely out lesbian. She and her family sat down to an interview with Bay Windows this week, in no small part because they realized someone was about to do a hit job piece and make her parents seem less accepting of her sexuality (which she disclosed to them last summer) than they are. And if that PFLAG video made you cry, get your Kleenex before you continue reading because Deval Patrick's response to his daughter's disclosure of her sexuality was, "I don't think we thought about who they loved - more that they knew what love was and that they would have love in their lives." Sniff.
