In 2005, Kim and Amanda—a mother and daughter—appeared on an Oprah Show
episode called "When I Knew I Was Gay." Amanda said she had known she was gay for as long as she could remember. At 10 years old, Amanda told her mother she was gay, but Kim dismissed it.
Then, at 17, Kim walked into Amanda's room and found her with another girl. "The night that my mom found out that I was a lesbian was probably the most horrible night of my entire life," Amanda said.
Watch Amanda and Kim talk about this night and their relationship.
