You might remember Tyler, a young 15 year old, from a horrendous story we told you about yesterday, where the teenager came out as gay and was subjected to a huge amount of abuse – from his own father. Now while our feelings on that are not exactly printable, something we are happy to talk about is the reaction of the general public to Tyler’s revelation.
After posting his dad’s comments and expressing how much he just wanted support and understanding, Tyler may not have gotten his wish from his parent, but he certainly found it from more than a couple of strangers who took to social media to commend the young lad.
The responses ranged from condemning his dad, calling him everything from brave to an inspiration to generally offering him support.
We think there needs to be a whole lot more of this and a whole lot less of the crap coming out of his father’s mouth.
Here’s another example of a brilliant way to come out – and one that got a far better response from their father.
