You can't prevent bullying for any particular detail. When a kid wants to make fun of another kid, the details are irrelevant. Bullies are sharks, they will find whatever detail makes someone unusual and relentlessly tease them for it.

What's important isn't making them immune to bullies, but making them the kind of person that people don't want to bully.

But how or what can we do this? I am not father already, but think about how a kid can be bullied because of the parents sexuality freaks me out. Specially because as I fight against  a depression illness, I got totally worried if the kid (s) can, because of the bullying, got depressed too.

I think your concerns are legitimate. I teach at a rather wealthy independent school, and it does a great job of trying to encourage openness and tolerance towards different family configurations. It's definitely a part of the elementary school curriculum. Does bullying still happen? Yes. One of my former high school advisees had a single gay father. That kid had to deal with the fact that his male peers would use the word "gay" as a perjorative, so the advisee never felt comfortable disclosing his dad's sexuality to his peers.

All this is to say, some families seek out tolerant schools. Although, choice is a function of class privilege. The school I teach at costs over $34,000/year for upper school tuition. So...yeah.
