I love this.
Remember the personal essay that circulated a while back about the mom whose young son was clearly in love with Blaine from Glee?
That little boy has since surprised his family and friends with an announcement confirming everyone’s suspicions, surprising considering he’s only 7:
I was in another room alone (I thought), explaining, “We’re not saying he’s straight, and we’re not saying he’s gay. We’re saying we love who he is,” when my son’s voice piped up behind me.
“Yes, I am,” he said.
“Am what, baby?” I asked.
“Gay. I’m gay.”
My world paused for a moment, and I saw the “geez, Mom, didn’t you know that already?” look on my son’s face.
I got off the phone and leaned down to eye level with him and rubbed my nose against his. “I love you so much.”
Read the rest of the Huffington Post article for his mom’s reaction to this announcement and its constant reiterations. She’s characterizing his announcement in the best way I can imagine. The story is heartwarming and inspiring, and you won’t regret reading it.
