Dana Rudolph, the popular blogger behind Mombian.com and an occasional guest contributor, interviewed me a couple of weeks ago for her column in Bay Windows. She's posted it on her blog now and I thought I'd share it with everyone. The interview focused on our family and how activism, the blog and familial obligations converge.
Now, on a typical day, Browning says, they get up with Paige and he drives her to school. He and Davis work until she comes home and does her chores and homework. By then, it's time for dinner. "Anything goes" after that, he says, noting "She's a teenager. Sometimes it's 'I'm going to go watch a movie in my room,' or sometimes it's 'Hey, can we watch American Idol together?'"
Paige nevertheless joins her dads in advocating for the LGBT community. "She actually thinks it's quite fun, except for going to all the boring meetings," explains Browning, "but when it comes time to rock and roll, Paige is right there with everyone, and she's darn good at it. She's probably one of the better advocates here in Indiana, just because she's able to tell her story, and tell it succinctly, with the ease that only a child can. She's a favorite among the various LGBT organizations here, which of course makes us very, very proud. That is our family. That's what we do. We stand up for each other."
