Video of a gay teen coming out to his mother is making the rounds online. The video shows the teen Dan Brian, nervously toying with his phone while admitting he is gay to his mother who doesn't know she is being videotaped.
According to the Dan Brian on his YouTube page:
"Finally got the strength to come out to my mom. My Mom has been extremely supportive. I could not ask for anyone else....Every circumstance is different and you will know when the right time to come out is. Stay strong. Babz and I are here for you....I decided to post this so that I could share my experience with you. Hopefully it will give hope to those who do not have such supportive families....and she didn't know she was being recorded. I put the camera in a tissue box on top of the refrigerator."
Brian's mother's reaction is remarkable. She says: “You have a choice, Daniel! You choose to be stubborn!”
Huffington Post reports Brian has responded to questions about the authenticity of the video, saying: "If she did know she would've worn better pants!"
Coming Out Journal notes also that there have been comments that Brian was on his phone all through, to which Brian respond: "I know I am on my phone the whole time. My phone is my comfort blanket. I literally cannot put it down when I'm anxious. I do not mean any disrespect to the content or conversation."
A similar video that went viral on YoTube was gay U.S. Airman Randy Phillip's video , "Telling my Dad that I am gay," which showed the airman coming out to his parents.
