Coming out to your parents can be very difficult, especially if you are not sure about where they stand on homosexuality.
We’re currently living in challenging times, and coming out to conservative parents during the current outbreak could possibly risk homelessness.
A loving father, though, wanted to offer his gay son the emotional support he needs during these difficult times, and he wanted to let him know that it’s absolutely okay to love who you want to.
The father decided to take it to Reddit to share that his son and his “friend” are a couple, and he asked fellow Redditors how to let them know that it’s okay. Expectedly, Reddit came to the rescue.
This can truly be a tricky situation for any parent, and it’s understandable that this dad chose to ask Reddit for opinion. “Forcing” your child to come out is a breach of their privacy, of course, but it’s for the good cause, and you really want to let them know that they would be loved and accepted no matter what.
Most Redditors praised the dad for being a ‘good and supportive father’, and shared their valuable advice.
