This is a video of a guy named Ryan, who secretly recorded himself coming out to his mother, so that the video might help others in the same situation. This, supposedly “pro-family” types, is how decent parents react when their kids come out to them. Ryan explains why he made the video:

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.

Grab tissues.
