LGBT rights and acceptance have come a long way over the past 15 years.

At the beginning of 2001, for example, no country in the world recognized same-sex marriage.

Notably, as of January 2021, 29 countries recognized same-sex marriage.

However, going out and letting people – especially your parents – know about your sexual orientation can still be intimidating.

Although gays and lesbians are more accepted today, there are still people who are less understood. So I can understand this boy who was terrified of telling his family he was gay.

But before the teenager had a chance to tell them, his father overheard him talking to his friend.

So what did the teen’s father do? He decided to make going out a little easier for his son.

He wrote her this informal and at the same time quite tolerable note:

“Nate,

I overheard your phone conversation with Mike last night about your plans to reveal me. The only thing I want you to plan is to bring home some orange juice and bread after class. We’re outside, like you are now.

I know you’ve been gay since you were six, I’ve loved you since you were born.

– Dad

P.S. Your mom and I think you and Mike make a cute couple.”

Imagine if all parents accepted this, the world would be a better place.

Please share this heartwarming story on Facebook with your friends if you also think that all people are equal!
