“Express support at times when it is not a discussion.”
While we have come leaps and bounds ahead in supporting the LGBTQ community, we are still quite far ahead in giving every queer person equality. And in a world as cynical as this, a child getting support from their parents is much needed.
That is why it is such a beautiful thing when parents try to help and support their kids in their time of need even though they might not fully understand themselves either. That is exactly what happened with this father.
You see, Jack Remmington and his friend were playing the Mariah Carey slots when a 40-something man approached them and started chatting with them. He was kind enough, but when he asked if they were gay, they knew where this conversation was heading.
Surprisingly enough, what he asked next was the most heartwarming thing ever. Scroll on below and take a look at what happened.
This is Jack Remmington.
It all seems quite ordinary at first.
But they knew it was not gonna end well when he asked them this.
But what he said next surprised us all.
We need more parents like these.
He clearly wanted some advice.
And he could not have approached more sweeter people.
And they were only too happy to oblige.
They gave the father quite a few tips.
His son is certainly a very lucky kid.
That is beautiful.
I wish more people were like this.
Just accept your kid for whoever they are.
Queer or otherwise.
It really is.
I agree 100%.
Jack clearly wants to make this world a better place.
And it is working.
There is some hope for society after all.
A good tip for anyone.
You’ve certainly put a smile on my face.
Understandably, people were just as supportive in the comments.
So much more indeed!
This thread really was quite wholesome.
What better way to start 2019 than this?
Hopefully, many more people learn something from this story.
