“You can’t describe someone’s sexuality without them being here, although I have a child with Aaron, I still can’t tell you how he was feeling inside. No one can. If he did feel that way or if he felt the urge, I wish that I — I was told, and I wish that he — you know, he would’ve told me ’cause I wouldn’t — I would not have loved him any differently. I would have understood. It’s not shameful and I don’t think anybody should be ashamed of who they are inside, regardless of who they love. I think it’s a beautiful thing, I just wish I was able to tell him that.”
