"I adore my lesbian daughters, keep them safe," said a sign held by 73-year-old Frances Goldin, who said society allows discrimination against gays and lesbians. She said her two daughters were marching in the parades in Portland, Ore., and San Francisco. Goldin said people had approached her with their phone numbers, asking: "Can I adopt you as my mother?" She said she'll call them. "Difference enriches us all," she said.
