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.

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.
