    David, you are so right. How will demonizers and shunners end up? Even teenage Taylor Swift knew… sad, pathetic and alone in life. Bless you for standing on the side of love and family. Brah, I pray for you every blessing of long life, togetherness, health and dreams fulfilled. Your brother from another Mother, Brian.

    This was amazing. Thank you. We need more people like you. I am from an organization called SWISH and we are straight allies working to bridge the gap. People like you making videos like this helps us to accomplish that. Thank you again!

    Love always wins out, hate always looses.

  4. Wow, PFLAG needs loving, caring family members like this outstanding young man, David. David is the better person and none of us needs Facebook ‘friends’ who are bigoted, hateful or a Bully. Love to David, his brother and hubby and their awesome family.

  5. Steven says:

    David, oh man, your brother, & his hubby, are two lucky men, you are AWESOME dude.

    To answer your question about how many kids ad adults have been rejected, we, I’m one, my mother couldn’t get her head around me marrying another man, and she has never ever gotten over the fact came out in 1989, and then I got HIV, and that only made things worse.

    So dude, ad me to ya Facebook friends, I’d be honoured…

    HUGS buddy…Steven Gibson

    Love really does win.

    My parents rejected my gay twin brother and me when we came out. My mom died shortly after, and my dad died in 2010. At the very end of his life, he was filled with regret, but he couldn’t go back. He tried to reconcile, and I suppose we did, but there was nothing on which to build our relationship. He never got to know me as an adult, and he missed out on getting to know my amazing son. It was so sad to see him realize that all these years, he was the one losing out; not me. Or my husband. Or our son.

    So I applaud you. Your brother is a lucky man!
