um adorable 300x215 Soldier Comes Out to Dad On Day of DADT RepealThis went viral yesterday, but if you somehow have missed it, it’s pretty awesome. This is what coming out should be like for everyone:

Hours after the U.S. military repealed Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, a young American soldier stationed in Germany had something to tell his father.

“Dad, I’m gay,” the soldier uttered into his cellphone. “Always have been and always known forever,” he adds.

His father’s reaction? “I still love you son.”

So awesome.
