A YouTube user known as "Mallow610" decided to film coming out as gay to his mother and share it with viewers, saying he hopes to help those with less supportive families.
In the relatable eight-minute video, he nervously waits for his mother to return home and then for the right moment to tell her.
He posted the following note with the video on YouTube: "Finally got the strength to come out to my mom. My Mom has been extremely supportive. I could not ask for anyone else. Love you :) 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. :) Note: 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. Also, 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. Oh, and she didn't know she was being recorded. I put the camera in a tissue box on top of the refrigerator."
