Real families feel threatened by a Trump presidency

Real families feel threatened by a Trump presidency

Frankie, Kelly & Nathan

The adopted son of gay dads took to Instagram recently to voice the fear and concern that he feels with a Trump presidency. Nathan Price is the 3rd oldest of the kids in his family. His dads, Frankie & Kelly, have adopted 8 children to date. They are also already grandfathers through their oldest son Devin and his wife!

In his Instagram post, 23-year-old Nathan speaks with pride and great affection for his family and especially his fathers whom he feels he and his brothers & sister can never really appreciate adequately.

Nathan’s original Instagram post.

As the reality of the next few days and ensuing months set in, I am reminded how truly lucky I am to have the individuals in this picture. 11 people with 11 very different childhoods form our family. 8 of which I share the ups and downs of sibling-hood with. Our family was man-made, our family defied laws, both in government and religion, our family is the product of two spectacular men that we do not and could never appreciate enough. The coming days and months are nothing short of terrifying for each of us, but I know I have the greatest homos in the game leading us! Thank you, thank you to my Dads @twogaysplusright and @2gaysplus8. I love you! #wearegayamerica #lovewilltrumphate #rememberourfamilies

I think that Frankie & Kelly are doing something right to raise a son who is that bold and forthright about what his parents mean to him.

Nathan is wearing pink shorts in the main photo. This story and the photos originally ran on HuffPost Gays With Kids. Read the story of how Frankie dropped out of college as a young man to rescue three brothers from life in drug dens with their addicted mother and started his forever family as a single parent until he met 21-year-old Kelly.
