Video of a teenage boy coming out to his mother on a hidden recording is going viral.
In video posted to YouTube, Hayden Smith nervously sets up a video camera, then calls his mom into the room.
After she sits down, he says: “I’m gay.”
She replies: “Are you? That’s ok. That’s very brave of you to tell me that. Thank you for telling me. It’s not going to make me love you any less, at all? OK? Your choice is your choice. And I accept you any way you are, you’re still my boy. You’re still my son.”
Then she follows it up with a surprise of her own.
“As you have been so open with me, I’ll tell you a secret, too. I’ve had a girlfriend.”
