  • 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.

    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.

      Mr. Mark Matila,
      You sir, are a raging homophobic (which probably means that you’re suppressing homosexual desires yourself but are too ashamed to admit it), and also a sorry excuse for a human being. You deserve to have your ass handed to you.

      Teresa
       a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and  regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.
       a political movement that employs the principles and methods of fascism, especially the one established by  Mussolini in Italy 1922–43.
      Teresa this describes you and the LGBT community . its not conservatives or the Tea Party or the religious right that wants to shut down the conversation look what your side did to duck dynasty and The venom Brothers

      Arguing with someone like Todd is like trying to convince a brick wall to move. He doesn’t represent straight people, he’s only in it to prove himself right. He’s ignorant and has no clue. Marriage equality will come about because it’s the right thing. It’s right by Christian law, it’s right by God’s law, it’s right by human law and it’s just plain right. People who disagree with LGBT equality live on hate.
