One woman’s brave support of a young man coming out to his family has gone viral and reminded us that basic human decency does exist. 

Natalie Woods was eating dinner with a friend at a restaurant in Addison, Texas, when she allegedly heard a family talking about their ‘awful, gay, nephew, that they need to pray for’.

Speaking to the Indy100 about the incident she admitted to initially being enraged by the conversation before having a brainwave…

She explained:

I sat there enraged but knew that my spouting off hate to this man wouldn’t solve anything. I felt sorry for his nephew, and quite frankly I felt sorry for this man and the people he was with.

I bought their dinner because I wanted to actually act like the Jesus I grew up learning about. I wanted to show them love, but also say the truth, so I wrote on the receipt that the waitress gave to them.

Natalie wrote on the receipt saying: “Happy Holidays from the very gay, very liberal table sitting next to you. Jesus made me this way. Ps Be accepting of your family.”

She then posted an image to Facebook to raise awareness further – although she admitted that she didn’t realise how big this would be and that after the election all she wanted to do was ‘show an act of love’.

It’s a lovely message and serves as a reminder that as bleak as things can seem politically it’s all going to be alright in the end. And if it’s not alright, then it’s probably not the end.
