Watch A Mother’s Heartwarming Response To Her Son’s Emotional Coming Out

In a video uploaded to YouTube in October, a gay son recorded his emotional coming out to his mother, who embraced him with open arms and a loving heart.

Ryan explains his decision to record his coming out:

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.

    I’m getting to the point where I’m jealous of these things happening. My mother has passed away now some time ago, so i will never be able to tell her anyway that I’m bisexual, but in my situation, I could never tell anyone I’m related to in my immediate family. Young people in their teens and 20s don’t know nearly as much as they used to what it’s like to grow up in a family or town or city where you can still be killed for being LGBT and where your family will want to have nothing more to do with you because they believe gay people deserve to be dead and burning in Hell. On a happier note, I always wanted something like this guy had even though I knew it could never come true, but I do have one addition. My fantasy coming out would have included one or both of my parents saying, “You know what we have to do now, don’t you? We have to find you a husband!”. At least I can feel good about it getting better for other people.
