Watch as my partner Joe’s almost 80-year old Grandfather gets tattoed to show his support for gay rights.

UK: Grandfather Writes Beautiful Letter in Support of Gay Grandson

Friday, April 18th, 2014


After a boy’s mother threw him out of the house for being gay, his Grandfather wrote a beautiful letter in support of his grandson.

The Gay UK reports:

In the letter he calls his daughter an ‘abomination’, after she threw her son, Chad, out of her home after he told her that he was gay. The father went on to say: ‘The only intelligent thing I heard you saying in all this was that you “didn’t raise your son to be gay” . Of course you didn’t. He was born this way and didn’t choose it any more than being left handed.’

This grandfather puts the boy’s mother to shame.

A 90-year-old woman has become an unexpected internet hit in China after her video calling for equal rights for her gay grandson went viral. ‘I am 90 years old,’ the grandmum says in the video, ‘My grandson is gay. ‘He treats me very well and he is sensible. I love him [and] I hope he can find a boyfriend and have a happy life. I hope the government can support him.’ During the video she holds up a sign which says in Chinese, ‘we urge the legalization of same-sex marriages.’

I lost one of my wonderful grandmothers last year, but I’d totally take this one in her stead.
