YouTube sensations Austin and Aaron Rhodes posted an emotional coming out video yesterday.

In the video, both brothers get very nervous and emotional, and Aaron even admits, "I'm going to pass out."

Their fears, however, quickly dissipated following their father’s response. "It's the way things are,” he said. “I love you both. That'll never change."

The twins wrote on their YouTube page, “With 2015 now here, we think it is time to finally just be ourselves. We hope by our actions today you can finish watching this video feeling encouraged and inspired. Thank you for all the support. We love you.”

Coming out—whether it's for the first time ever or the first time today—can be an arduous journey. Coming out is also a brave decision to live openly and authentically.
