Many Hollywood and sports stars have spoken out over the years to share their love for their lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer children. Find out which stars have been supportive of their LGBTQ kids—and the few that haven't been as effusive—starting with Sally Field, who's a mom of three.
In 2012, when Sam Greisman, Sally's writer-producer son with second husband Alan Greisman, presented his mother with the Ally for Equality Award at the Human Rights Campaign Gala, he praised her with humor. "When I came out, she didn't bat an eye," he said. "In fact, she was overjoyed. Being gay was just one more thing she loved about me. She couldn't be more supportive of me; if anything, I wish she was a little less supportive of me." Case in point: In early 2018, Sally made headlines when she publicly tried to set up Sam with his Winter Olympics crush, figure skater Adam Rippon. ("Sam was mortified," she later admitted to Buzzfeed.)
Even though Sally might sometimes embarrass her youngest child, in 2016, the Oscar winner gushed about him in an interview with EW Radio. "What horrifies me is that there are parents who so disapprove, who are so brainwashed to think that this is something out of the Bible or ungodly or against nature. It's not against nature if nature has actually done this," she said. "Sam was always Sam, this wonderful human that he is, from the time he was born." Keep reading for more stars who have LGBTQ kids.
