In a Bay Windows story, Katherine Patrick, the daughter of Massachusetts governor, Deval Patrick and his wife, Diane, talks about coming out to her parents AFTER her father helped Massachusetts finally defeat a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.

“Because, of course, he didn’t know that I was gay then,” the 18-year-old recalls. “So, for someone so publicly to fight for something that doesn’t even affect him was just like, ’That’s my dad,’ you know?” she says with a laugh. “That’s all I could think. I was very, very proud to be part of this family, and this state in general.”

Governor Patrick said,

“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,” he explains.
