Welcome back to Ask a Homo, a judgment-free zone where the gays of Outward answer questions about LGBTQ politics, culture, etiquette, language, and other queer conundrums. This week, a viewer has a practical question about same-sex weddings: When the gender of the couple is the same, how do the traditional rules for parent financial support apply?
