Watch: Mother drops fantastic bombshell after son comes out to her

Nick Duffy September 17, 2014


A video has captured a mother dealing with her son’s coming out in the most brilliant way – coming out to him too.

The clip, recorded by Hayden Smith, follows the recent trend of people secretly filming themselves coming out to their parents.

After Smith opened up about his sexuality, his mother responded: “That’s very brave of you to tell me that.

“Thank you for telling me. It doesn’t make me love you any less, at all. Okay?

“Your choice is your choice. I accept you however way you are. You’re still my boy. Honey, I’m okay with it.

However, from the five-minute mark in the video, she dropped a bombshell of her own.

She said: “Since you’ve opened up to me, can I tell you a secret too? I’ve had a girlfriend. I was worried about what you would think.”

Last week, a pair of twins have released a video of them coming out to their parents at the same time.

The trend started after a video went viral showing Daniel Pierce, 20, being verbally abused by his parents and kicked out of his home, after coming out to them.

Pierce explained: “I knew something was happening. I thought, for myself, for my own protection, if something were to happen it would be best to have it on video.”
