WITH all the celebrity coming out videos that are going viral on the internet, one coming out video from someone who isn’t in the public eye has emerged – a video where the person is more worried about acceptance from his mum rather than acceptance from the public domain.
YouTube user Ryan wrote the below about why he chose to film and share his coming out story with his mother:
“I made this video because when I was contemplating coming out for the last year, I found other similar videos of people coming out to family members on a hidden camera really helpful.
“I noticed that there weren’t very many of these videos, so I wanted to create my own to help other people in the same way that I found these videos helpful.
“If you’ve created a similar one, I guarantee you I’ve seen it, so thank you so much for helping me. My mom reacted in an amazing way, and I really hope that all of you have a similar experience.”
Disclaimer: there weren’t many dry eyes in the Star Observer office after watching this emotional video of bravery, love and acceptance.
For those who have come out, how does this compare with your story? For those who want come out, does this beautiful tale of acceptance give you the courage?
