The youngest daughter of Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick says she’s gay, but didn’t come out to her parents until after lawmakers voted to kill a proposal to outlaw gay marriage.

Katherine Patrick made the revelation public in an interview with her father in Bay Windows, a weekly Boston newspaper aimed at the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community.

Patrick, who supports gay marriage, said he was proud of his daughter. The two will march in Boston’s gay pride parade Saturday.

This is an example of love truly winning out, not the bogus snake oil Focus on the Family peddles to desperate and confused parents.
