Actor and mom Julianne Moore just did a video interview with the Advocate to promote her Valentine’s Day project with Save the Children, selling cards designed by top children’s illustrators to raise money for fighting poverty in America. Along the way, she talks about engaging children in social change, how LGBT families in particular have a history of activism and charitable giving, and how she’s bringing her own kids up with a healthy dose of reality about LGBT families:
That’s the other thing about my children growing up in New York is that, for them, you can be married to a girl or a boy. . . . That’s been a given since preschool because there are plenty of gay families in New York City. . . . You can say as much as you’d like, and say this is how the world is, but when they walk out and see it and they know that Ethan has two moms, and that Jackson has two dads . . . . Kids are able to handle everything, anything, as long as it’s exampled for them.
