A 20-year-old whose 'conservative' father found out his son was gay on Snapchat has shared the touching, emotional response he received from his dad.
Writing on Reddit, Brett said: "So my dad texted me first because he saw something "troubling" on snapchat. I had called myself a f****t in my snap chat story when I was drunk and one of my siblings must have showed him. He asked me if it was true that I was gay and I said yes. Then I received this text the next day."
The emotional story has prompted numerous responses and outpourings of support.
One Reddit user wrote: "That's awesome he is so supportive! This gives me motivation to come out to my conservative dad." Another added: "I'm still nervous, and as I came out to myself about a month ago, I'm gonna give myself some time first. But it's great to see that everyone can be supportive."
While a third said: "Congrats! That's so heart-warming. I hope my dad can react the same way. I'm coming out next Friday to him."
