Coming out of the closet - LIVE

A teen boy, who secretly set up a camera to record the moment when he told his mother he was gay, received a big surprise when his mother revealed a secret of her own.

Hayden Smith, who uploaded the video to YouTube, tucked his camera onto a shelf before yelling for his mother to come into his “messy” room.

After she enters and he asks her to close the door, he flatly states “I’m gay.”

“Are you? That’s OK,” she replies.

His voice trembling, he says, “I’ve known for awhile.”

Placing her hand on his knee, his mother says, “Honey? That’s very brave of you to tell me that. Thank you for telling me. Doesn’t make me love you any less, at all. OK? You choice is your choice. And I accept you however way you are. You’re still my boy, you’re still my son. It’s OK.”

After some discussion over how long he has known and the difficulties he has been having keeping it a secret, his mother asks him if he is worried what other people will say.

“No,” he replies, “I was worried what you were going to say.”

Then his mother surprises him.

“Can I tell you something too? Since you’ve opened up to me, I’ll tell you a little secret too,” she says. “I’ve had a girlfriend. Not since your dad passed away. It goes both ways. And I was always worried what you would think.”

On This Day....



On This Day – Pete Souza: “I loved the look Alanah Poullard’s face as the President wrote a school excuse note for the five-year-old, while visiting with Wounded Warriors and their families in the East Room during their tour of the White House. Alanah asked for a note to show her kindergarten teacher so she wouldn’t get in trouble for missing a school day.” Sept. 19, 2013
