Her son is gay and she learned the importance of support and put out this PSA that went viral and has impacted so many people. Her quote “PSA. If you need a mom to attend your same-sex wedding because your biological mom won’t. Call me. I’m there. I’ll be your biggest fan. I’ll even bring the bubbles,” “I’m simply doing what I wish someone would have done when I was trying to figure things out, being a woman of faith and a mother with a gay son,” she wrote. The people were astounded by Cunningham’s offer has been so positive, the post has been shared 8,600 times. She’s even received 6 wedding invitations.

She has married LGBT couples before and recently posted on Facebook that she’ll attend the weddings of any same-sex couples who don’t have support from their parents. “People need hope — I sure do — and we need to be that for each other in any way, shape, or form,” Cunningham said. 🌈 💒 😭 (📸: Facebook)
