Titus O’Neil on standing up for the LGBTQIA+ community, adopting a gay girl
Titus O’Neil has been a huge advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community, and he recently opened up about his work in that capacity and adopting a gay girl. O’Neil spoke with Fight Inc. for a new interview and you can check out some highlights below:
About Queer Community Advocacy: “I have always been an advocate for members of the lesbian and gay community because members of my family have been persecuted by members of my own family for being gay or lesbian. That I still have a very strong disgust for them and that I haven’t spoken much about them since. We need to take a closer look at being greater human beings and these great human beings have very important differences, but our differences should not divide us. This should help us understand from a different point of view.
On adopting an openly gay girl: “I have a daughter that I just adopted. She is 16 years old and she is openly gay. One person asked me, “How does it feel to have a gay girl?” “Well, what’s it like having a straight son, he’s a**hole?” I’ve known her since she was seven or eight. I adopted her because she is a wonderful human being. She deserves a dad. Whatever her sexual preference, I’m not here to damn her or put her down for what she chooses to experience.
