Youtube’s Gay Pride video is a tearjerker 9



View Profile

This beautiful video by Youtube showing young couples and young gay people coming out to their families on Skype, speaking out on gay rights and sharing who they really are and have been for years is definitive of the massive global awakening that is going on around gay marriage rights this month, LGBT Pride Month…

“My son is not an issue… he is a person just like you” is a spectacular quote by an over 60 in the video.

It’s emotional, it’s raw and it’s real!  Share your thoughts.

Have you had a child “come out” in your family?

  1. It must be hard for them but you as parents are supposed to love your children unconditionally they are still that same son/daughter so be understanding

  2. Why oh why do they constantly have to bombard us all with their sexual activities. It rules their life and defines them. Surely they are real people with lives . Our sex life is very private , wish theirs was too. It seems to me that they know it is wrong but want acceptance to make it right.

    • I at no stage through that video see anything about sexual activity,I see a video about love & acceptance of people that are born that way who just deserve equal rights, seems to me it is some straight people that are the ones that are hung up on other peoples sexual activities.

      • I agree Wonderful scenes of people in love, rejoicing in the opportunity to live as the rest of us have just taken for granted. Nothing publicly sexual about it.
        Now let’s hope Abboott joins the 21st century and allows people the same rights and opportunity here.

  3. ‘Bombard us with all their sexual activities’ !!!! Where? OMG, someone is very sensitive! I see people holding hands and kissing like any loving couple. Heterosexual sexual activities are everywhere and a lot more in your face!

  4. Anybody would think that homosexuality had just been invented. It’s been around forever you know. I have no problem with people who are homosexual so can we all move on now.
