  • Secretly-Recorded Coming Out Video That Is Almost Every LGBT Child's Nightmare Goes Viral

    This video, apparently secretly recorded, shows how one family responded when their young son told them he is gay. It starts with them choosing the Bible and religion over him, disowning him, kicking him out of their home, then swearing, physical assault, and of course, emotional assault.

    Chilling, stunning, devastating.

    Every parent of an LGBT child should watch this to know what not to do -- or, in some cases, to hear how they sound. 

    Posted just yesterday, it has more than half a million views already.


    Dr. Drew Show: Viral Coming Out To Homophobic Parents Video 'Saved Someone's Life' Yesterday

    Here's The Story Behind 20-Year Old's Secretly Recorded Coming Out Viral Video


    Caution: trigger warning.

    Fortunately, this mentality is slowly diminishing, but this video is proof it exists -- and in too many homes, as we know 40 percent of homeless runaways are LGBT kids, and 1.6 and 2.8 million youths run away each year.

    Dan Savage writes:

    That was hard to listen to. Jesus. Fucking. Christ. My heart breaks for that poor, brave, tough kid. What the fuck is wrong with these people?

    We could have a fundraiser up and running for this poor kid by morning—if we knew who he was and where he was.

    Please remember, if you are an LGBT child or teen in need of help, the National Runaway Switchboard at 1-800-RUNAWAY can help you. The Ali Forney Center has a local and national LGBT youth online resource guide. In the Atlanta, Georgia area Lost-n-Found Youth serves LGBT homeless youth. They're also on Facebook.

      It’s about time for the fat lady to start singing here, “Let It Go”

      It wasn’t the not/never that was confusing. It was using while as a conjunction. Synonymous with whereas or but .. which in turn, is useful for creating a 180 in a thought. A comparison was made rather than a parallel. & unfortunately, you meant to create a parallel.. BUT this commentary is about love & tolerance. Not about communication. Lol xo love you queenie.

      Yes Sydney, which is why i phrased it the way i did, i didnt say it was NEVER, just that it does not mean that all the time, could have made that a little clearer i guess.

      Todd: then please explain the fact it exists in over 1500 species in NATURE, and has always existed in man, do you think that all through history it was a choice? when it was ILLEGAL, as in sentenced to death in many instances it was a choice?

      I don’t particularly agree with most of those actions. if someone wants to hate, but is not directly hurting someone (as in a doctor refusing care) i would go else where, and make sure everyone i knew was informed of the business practices. some do it for various reasons, to prove a point after people like you have made their lives hell, our “lifestyle” is not the problem, ignorant people like you do. i was for NOT allowing the term marriage, but the A**hole politicos and anti gay activists never offered the only real option to save the “sanctity” of marriage (you know the one that you are not supposed to divorce from, but do, yeah the sanctity is SOO there still, lol) a “civil union” with the same legal standing in EVERY way (because no matter how you want to phrase it, current day marriages are NOT religious, they are secular. you can say i do in a church all you want but without a STATE authorized minister, a marriage license and witnesses, it is NOT a legal marriage for purposes like taxes, insurance, medical treatment and access, etc) then i would have been fine with it, but they made their own bed beside the likes of you and you LOST your precious “sanctity” of marriage, didnt you?

      on the tolerance claim, yes heteros have NEVER sued anyone for not allowing their patronage i know, they are just too perfect, again do the research before inserting your foot maybe???? it is called equality, not special privilege.

      as to the claim the “vast majority” you really need to do research, it is far more accepted than not in the world at large, primarily in western, 1st and 2nd world countries, most 3rd world countries cant even keep a government longer than a decade or two and they go back and forth.

      no need to call you names, you have named yourself

      as to being homosexual, depends on how you look at it. i am a female, and i am attracted to males. some members of society see me as a man dressing as a women, so i am gay for liking men. here is one for you. i have been with one man, consensually (more if you count molestation, but yes it was because of my trans, dressing as a girl gave the three cousins ideas i guess, two male, one female) and that was after i repressed because of people like you, and i was confused as to what i was. i wont go into more because honestly its not worth my time.

      You prove my point if you read my previous post you’d understand and you’re absolutely wrong it is not 99% natural it was natural the gene would be carried on through procreation since homosexuals do not procreate it cannot be natural and I’m ignorant because I didn’t research the issue what a joke why don’t you try research the issue Teresa
      I don’t hate you Christ doesn’t hate you but what you are doing leads to a miserable life it’s a sad thing what happened to you but it’s what made you who and what you are try doing a little research on homosexuality .
      Its obvious to me that most of the people who promote homosexuals or homosexuality on this site are homosexuals and look for justification for their behavior or look to normalize it that’ll never happen your side claims that my side is not tolerant it’s the LGBT community that is not tolerant remember chick fa lay or the bakery that would not bake a cake for a gay wedding or the family own farm that would not host a gay wedding that’s how tolerance your side is you force your opinion and your lifestyle on the rest of us you can accept the fact That the vast majority of the world does not accept the behavior of the LGBT community what next you going to start calling me names

      That’s was a really cool post except not being religious CAN in fact mean you’re ignorant to religion. Not always. But damn sure happens. :)

    • commented 2014-09-04 19:09:40 -0400
      Todd Warmbrodt- not being religious does NOT mean being ignorant of religion. while being religious can mean you are ignorant of science.

      for 99% it is not a choice (i know some might “choose” after being raped, etc) it is biology. and yet the bible SUPPORTS it and you still cant accept it. you cant pick and chose, just as those who use references from the old testament, but ignore all the “inconvenient” ones for them, you know like mixing cloths in clothing, or eating certain types of foods, daughter and /or wife dressing to entice being stoned to death, etc, etc. you are one of the ones that drove me FROM the church’s, you and your hypocritical brethren.

      i am “religious/spiritual” but i dont let ANYONE decide what the bible says or means, if i am not sure i research it, like Joe did here, and showed you the “error of your ways” so if you are being as you say you are, you are NOT a christian, but a typical hypocrite who only follows the parts they like, not the ones that are inconvenient to their who “choices” of hate.

      thanks for showing us your true self.

      Teresa (transsexual MtF, Bi sexual, molestation survivor who repressed it all because of the hypocrites like you, wasting 30 years of my life)

      P.S. bet the transsexual scares you silly doesnt it, lol

      so you’re not religious huh well you happen to find a passage that suits your agenda Joe if you read my previous post I stated I didn’t want to use religion as an argument reread my post and you’ll understand just exactly how I feel about homosexuality you weren’t born with it it was a lifestyle choice all homosexuals are perverted . I do not accept your lifestyle I never will and most of the world will not so get over it .

      in Matthew 19:4-5,
      “Jesus answered, ‘Have you not read that the One who made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife and the two shall become one flesh”? Therefore, what God has joined together, let no one separate.’ ”

      “Not everyone can accept this teaching, but only those to whom it is given. For there are eunuchs who have been so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by others, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let anyone accept this who can.” (Matthew 19:11-12)

      Jesus refers to “eunuchs who have been so from birth.” This terminology (“born eunuchs”) was used in the ancient world to refer to homosexual men. Jesus indicates that being a “born eunuch” is a gift from God.

      I’m not even religious, but for all you religious close minded pricks its in the fucking bible that JESUS ACCEPTS GAY PEOPLE. I’m pretty sure that says “since birth.”

      I’m currently studying psychology. Just finished my bachelor’s in December and hope to eventually be a clinical psychologist. No one chooses to be gay. Do you choose to be straight (or bi?)? No. You just are. It is, as the kid says, a fact that any basic biology teacher can tell you. That is what they are teaching us, because it is what cutting edge research in neuroscience suggests.

      Furthermore it is foolish to assume that science and God are mutually exclusive. I don’t understand why both Extra-strict scientists and Extra-strict Christians insist on close-mindedness. Perhaps it’s too much faith in science by scientists (thinking the scientific method is absolute) and not enough faith in God in religion (not trusting in God to light the world)? God bless that poor kid.

      AMEN DIANA. no sin is greater than the next.

    • commented 2014-09-01 18:42:54 -0400
      1. This poor child my heart breaks for him and all that he’s going through.

      2. I am a christian and though I don’t agree with homosexuality it is not my place to judge. God said “lest he who sins cast the first stone”. I know I’m a sinner and I’m broken and though I try to do right and live a holy life. I do fall short, and because of that I am no one to judge how someone else lives.

      3. I don’t know if I believe that they’re born that way or if it’s a choice. But either way it is not something for me to decide. Because God said “love thy neighbor as thyself” and “that he makes everyone is christ likeness” so if I choose to disown someone bases on that I am no better the the choice they have made.

      4. Mark Matila before you judge someone on their choices and say it’s this or that. Pick up a bible and read it. Being a christian you don’t get to pick and choose which parts you like and which you don’t. It’s a take it or leave it kind of life. All in or all out, not one foot in. Jesus is the same person who loved the theif, and the whore, and the murder and went to them.

      5. To this young man just remember God loves you and he picked you.

      1. This family is the unfortunately typical southern “christian”, using the twisted version of things to foster their hate in religion. Same as Matt Matila does below. Matt if you are a true christian, read Hebrew 8:13, this verse tells you that the covenant, those things that the twisted christians use to support their hateful view (JC is about love, acceptance, even if they ARE sinners you moron. also the NEW testament is the book of Christ, NOT the old testament. his death releases us from those onerous scriptures, if not you immediately need to form stoning parties, starting with your self.)

      2. Matt Matila, read above, you are using a twisted, cherry picked version of christianity, maybe you are a self hating denier???? those are usually the worst at this kind of thing.

    • commented 2014-09-01 11:26:06 -0400
      I dont normally comment on things like this. But this broke my heart. I know what it is to stand on both sides of this, an argument that shouldn’t ever happen.
      These ‘parents’ did it wrong, that is their child, no matter what. It baffels me that people like that are able to reproduce. The issue isnt that they dont believe in homosexuality, the issue is they’re allowing their beliefs to create hatred towards the child they made. And as concequence, creating negativity in that child, passing on the negativity through ‘nurture’ .
      I hope everyone involved in this video can find peace and forgiveness. And may the earths positive energy, spirit; touch, and ripple through our individual lives.

      DC COOK, I wish you have the balls to come and meet me one on one, I will knock you the f*ck out. Don’t talk about shit you can’t do. And for the record, I teaching my kids the right way of life. And that is marriage is between a men and a women. If our school system starts teaching this shit in school than I’m pulling my kids out of school. If I was have a gay child I won’t disown him or her. Like I said I brought you in this world I will take you the fuck out.


      Look b*tch, don’t talk shot about my mother. Don’t be mad because she raised me the right way. Did your mother disown you because of your lifestyle. Well good for your mom. Like I said, gay is not something you were born with, it’s a choice. An I did not use God as an excuse. I don’t believe in religion. So f*ck off.

      I don’t condemn anybody I guess in your book the only way people are allowed to think is your way if they have a different opinion then they must be dealt with you’re a true Nazi MEECH . How mi a coward I come on this site just like you and I am free to express myself just like you the difference is I don’t condemn you for your beliefs you’re free to believe any way you want I am just simply expressing myself based on the knowledge that I have acquired through 55 years of life

      You prove my point about the tolerance of the left foul language and threats are what the left is all about if people don’t believe the way you do then you want to beat the hell out of them or kill them you sound like a Nazi to me and you’re absolutely wrong people are not born gay there a product of the environment in which they were brought up in you seek acceptance for your behavior you’re nothing but a foul mouth punk for every study that you can bring to the table that proves your point. I can bring 2 or 3 it reminds me of global warming more bullshit from the left no such thing as man made global warming I’ll say it one more time if it was genetic the gene would have been eliminated from the human race thousands of years ago gay people do not procreate they recruit

    • commented 2014-08-31 23:09:06 -0400
      Todd stop with the bullshit. Being a bigot is a choice. You made it. Because you’re a weak coward who can’t cope with life with an excuse to make life suck more for other people. Grow some balls and be a man without needing to condemn other people. All the time you spend condemning others is time you could be spending on yourself.

    • commented 2014-08-31 23:05:24 -0400
      Mark, I find that people who give this much shit about what’s wrong with other people aren’t doing much to tend to themselves. You are the kind of scumbag shitted out from the crustiest and most puss and scabbed riddled vaginae humanity could ever produce. How could your mother have possibly been any better than a beer swigging trailer trash whore if raising you was the best she could do? No go work on the planks in thine own eye and stop using God as an excuse for being a low life piece of shit who uses bigotry to cope with your own shortcomings. THAT’S a choice. What does it say about your character that it’s what you chose?

      And by the way, if your actions cause you some measure of embarrassment because they were shown in a video, then there is something wrong with your behavior.

    • commented 2014-08-31 22:22:00 -0400
      Of course, all of you are experts on sexuality. Come on now, lets see those PhDs in Psychology and Sociology etc. And just one note here – ’providing" for a child does not earn anyone the right to be abusive to the child. Respect goes both ways, even the bible, as flawed as it is, at least gets that right.

      Your right he disrespected his parents he set his parents up why would anyone record such a situation unless they intended to set your parents up 20 years old living in the basement doesn’t have a job . unfortunately I believe it is his parents fault for him becoming gay they obviously weren’t involved enough in his upbringing where was his father teaching him how to be a man or what it is to be a man. most of these people on this thread who are pro LGBT have been successfully brainwashed through the public education system and major media.
      Those on the left the progressive liberal left the people that promote this kind of behavior have all been brainwashed have all been told its normal its natural that we should just accept it like gay marriage this kind of behavior is an attack on our way of life . Marriage is and has always been between a man and a woman the LGBT community does not seek equal rights they seek special rights they seek to destroy the institution of marriage . If you think the LGBT community is a moral community you obviously have not witnessed a gay pride parade like in San Francisco never in my whole life have I seen such vile acts of perversion being displayed on the public streets I don’t care if people are gay just do it behind closed lock doors and don’t ask me to pay for the medical bills that occur from this kind of behavior like AIDS
      I don’t want to hear that people think that Christ or God accept this kind of behavior it is true that he loves everybody no matter what their sin is but he does not love this kind of behavior our Lord and Savior finds this kind of behavior immoral against the will of God
      Those on the left preach tolerance to others that is big lie as being gay is normal the LGBT community is the most intolerant community there is besides Islam if you don’t accept this lifestyle you’re labeled a hater or told your ignorant it’s the same with abortion if you don’t accept abortion as a means of birth control instead of murder of the unborn you’re also labeled a hater

      You dumb mother fuckers it’s a proven fact that your born gay!! That’s why his mom knew all this time.. I should come beat the fuck out both you.. You fuckers are just to stupid to get it through your mind that there’s been so much hybrid breeding between humans that Gayness is a genetic conflict.. When you stupid fucks pull your head out your ass and look th research up one of your fucking sons might be a faggot because all the fucking around you worthless fucks so. And I hope karma does bring a gay daughter or son in your life.

      Jacob Duga, I’m over here laughing at your comment. I’ll brake you into pieces faggot. Your one of those people that needs an ass whooping. Those parents were right, for 20years the parents has provided for him and he turn around and disrespected his parent like that. That’s a no no in my book. Now that he’s all grown up he wants to disrespect his own parent. F*ck that little piece of shit. Parents should not disowned their gay kids. Just beat the living shit out of them until they become straight. End this nonsense lifestyle.

      If I could get my hands on those “parents” or Mark Matila for that matter, I would break every bone they had the second they tried to pull their abusive shit on me. Some people forfeit their right to live-these are those people. And while I’m the bigger person, I would not hesitate to defend myself in a way that leaves scum broken and battered. And when I was done, I would call a fucking ambulance. Because that’s the right fucking thing to do. The reality is, only one of the people in that video did NOT make a choice. The parents, the bigots, the less than humans masquerading as people, they make the choice to disown and abuse and kill gay children. By their own standards, then, they must be disowned and abused for their utter failure to be decent human beings.

      If I could get my hand on that kid, I would beat his ass. F*cking disrespectful. Being gay is by choice. I think that with all this shit going around I fear for my kids learning about this life style. I will beat the living shit out of my kid if he comes to me and say he’s gay. I brought you in this world and I will take you out. It’s that easy. Parents nowadays need to take care of the situation before it gets bad. The mother said she knew he was gay since he was a child. Do something don’t just sit there and watch your child become gay. It all start with good parenting and educating your kids on what’s right or wrong. Let’s take control of this nonsense gay lifestyle before it gets out of control.

      You can’t argue with an ignorant individual who has no interest in educating themselves to the truth, or accepting those who are different from themselves. Don’t even bother. It’s apparent he’s regurgitating the same dated, uneducated, ignorant point of views he grew up hearing. Some people are incapable of thinking for themselves, much less educating themselves. What is sure to die out eventually are such, again, ignorant thought points of view and thought processes. Such a sad individual.

    • commented 2014-08-30 22:50:44 -0400
      If I could get my hands on that kid’s parents. I’d whoop their asses. This is pathetic. For sad, insecure bigots, to treat their own child that way. This sickens me. People are so worried about the gay community “going against the word of God” when in fact, they’re not preaching God’s word, you’re twisting the word to your own liking and using it as you please to condemn those that you don’t want to approve of because you’re judgemental sorry sacks of shit.
