A text message conversation in which a 13-year-old comes out to his ‘best bro’ has gone viral.

The exchange – shared by the boy’s older sister – shows the 13-year-old boy braced for the worst reaction when he came out to his friend.

He wrote: “I feel different? I don’t know how to put it but it’s bad different….

“I like boys. this is so embarassing for me to say but that’s my secret an I was so scared of telling you because your (sic) my best friend bro and I don’t want you to think im weird and just leave or anything.”

However, his friend replied: “Bro we hav been friends for 3 years and I’m glad you told me this.

“Who the f**k cares what people are going to say? Youre awesome no matter what bro and I’m happy that your my best friend.

“Dont be ashamed theres nothint to be embarrassed about. As a bro im gonna stick by you.

“Aint nothing wrong with being gay my friend.”
