What this 80-year-old did to show support for his gay grandson is pretty cool

Some gay people worry about coming out to their grandparents, but this 80-year-old showed his grandson that there was nothing to worry about.

In a show of support for his gay grandson, Frank Orvino took to a Chicago tattoo parlour, got an equality tattoo.

The equals sign tattoo matches that of his grandson Joe Skwarek, who came out to his grandfather first.

Mr Orvino has also attended Chicago Pride every year since Joe came out.

He even uploaded a video of the process to YouTube. It is available to watch below.
