Beautiful Photo Of Black Gay Dads, Kordale & Kaleb, Sparks Twitter Uproar
Our nonexistent ovaries did a bit of a flip when we saw this beautiful photo of Kordale and Kaleb, a gay couple going about their morning routine with their daughters!
They write on Instagram:
Being fathers is getting our daughters up at 5:30 am making breakfast getting them dressed for school and putting them on the bus by 6:30 .This is a typical day in our household . It's not easy but we enjoy every moment and eveny minute of #fatherhood .#proudfathers #blackfathers #prouddads #gaydads
Sadly, it was only after seeing the image that we read this piece from Mused Mag that revealed the firestorm that was set off by the image of two (GORGEOUS) gay black men raising a family. Beyond Steven writes:
From my view, this is a beautiful image of two strong fathers taking care of their children; however, Black Twitter didn’t see it that way.
I’m not going to list peoples’ comments or anything of the like because ignorance doesn’t belong on MUSED. It wasn’t the negative comments that surprised me, but the positive ones: “Finally a black gay couple.”
So it appears the Twitter commentary varies from the predictable homophobia that you might expect to shock over seeing a healthy and loving black gay couple raising a family.
By the way, they've got three kids: Desmiray, Maliyah, and Kordale Jr. and they all look pretty damn happy!
What's the problem?!
Haters gonna hate. Head over to Instagram for more photos of Kordale and Kaleb and their beautiful family!
Are you surprised the reaction within the Twitterverse, Instincters?
