The Lesbian Granddaughter of Homophobic Anita Bryant, Ryan Field Books

The Lesbian Granddaughter of Homophobic Anita Bryant

I really don’t know much about Anita Bryant. Other than what I’ve read and what I’ve been told, the most I know about her that seems accurate is that she’s always been anti-gay. I think her biggest claim to fame was that she was once Miss Oklahoma, and later 2nd runner up in the Miss America Pageant. 

And now there’s an interesting twist to Bryant’s own personal story. Her granddaughter is gay and she’s getting married and the granddaughter isn’t sure about whether or not she should invite Bryant to the wedding. 

It’s truly a rather sad story. I’m sure my grandparents knew about my brother and me being gay, even though those things were never discussed aloud. But they always supported us in quiet ways. And my own mom and dad, as grandparents, offered nothing but love and support to my nephew and niece when they came out as gay. So I feel so sorry for Bryant’s granddaughter. 

The granddaughter of “arch” anti-gay activist Anita Bryant is unsure if she should invite her granny to her wedding in which she will marry another woman.

Here’s more. I would hope that if she’s invited Bryant would attend. I hope there’s a follow-up to this. 

There’s also a famous video of Bryant at this link where she’s giving a press conference back in the 1970s and right in the middle of her anti-gay speech someone hits her in the face with a pie.
