FCKH8 Posts Dad’s Preemptive Acceptance Letter To Gay Son On Facebook
An extremely laid back dad has become a social hero over his response to overhearing his son’s plans to come out as a homosexual to his parents.
A letter posted to Facebook this morning by the pro-gay clothing and accessory brand FCKH8 is going viral as an inspirational example of acceptance from father to son.
Nate was on the phone with his boyfriend Mike expressing his fear and anxiety over coming out as gay to his parents. Nate’s dad overheard the conversation and left his son an encouraging note, remarkable for its nonchalance and nuanced sweetness.
Transcribed by Towleroad, the note reads:
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.
