A Note of Support from Father to Son
In March, a note from a father to his son caught the hearts of many internet users when it was posted to Facebook and spread around social media. The note contained an admission of overhearing a son's plan to come out to his father. Instead of waiting for that conversation to work itself out, the father offered a few words of support and a need for orange juice. Just because he's gay doesn't mean he can't still complete his chores.
I overheard your phone conversation with Mike last night about your plans to come out to me. The only thing I need you to plan is to bring home OJ and bread after class. We are out, like you now.
I’ve known you were gay since you were six, I’ve loved you since you were born.
P.S. Your mom and I think you and Mike make a cute couple.
