    Great simple concept: all people are worthy of love. Charming and touching, but I don't think it's an LGBT message; it's simply a message of the value and uniqueness of each human being and that everyone is worthy of love.
    A perfect, simple, easily grasped idea for a four or five year old child. Children this young are incapable of comprehending concepts of sexual politics and LGBT equality. Its inappropriate to introduce sexuality to a child under 12. To a very young child gender concepts are simple and non-sexualized, and rightly so.
    Again, a charming message, but I think it's reaching to assume it a LGBT message. If it was staged as such then I think it's both manipulative and inappropriate to use these kids to overly sentimentalize a social issue about which they can not reason abstractly. I despise when children are manipulated to push adult agendas. It's loathsome and I have to believe no school would allow it.

    Also, I think we dilute the LGBT equality agenda if we constantly overly sentimentalize our equality goals and reduce them to concepts like 'we're all deserving of love". While true that we are, this movement needs to stop hiding the facts from opponents and ourselves - its about fucking. Period. We get to fuck - either single or until death do us part - whomever we choose. It's not whatever we choose e.g the family dog or a goat or the neighbor's horse - nor is it that we get to fuck in public or outside of socially safe norms i.e. we can't engage in sex with a minor. But it damned well IS about consensual sex, with OR without a marriage license (OUR choice) whomever we love or even just plain think is hot, and all the rights and all the responsibilities that come with it. It's that damned simple. Complex questions of tax rights, SSI, adoption, etc enter into the 'fallout' but the bottom line is fucking and nobody can tell me as an adult what other consenting adult I can or can't fuck. That my dears is the LGBT agenda. Period.
