After overhearing his son's phone conversation discussing coming out to his parents, this dad responded with a truly touching note:
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.
PS Your mom and I think you and Mike make a cute couple.
