When it comes to different ways to come out of the closet, YouTube is probably one of the most common ways for celebrities and vloggers. Young YouTuber Riyadh Khalaf (he’s Irish, in case you’re wondering) is famous for posting hilarious, comedic videos about his life and experiences. The videos like “My mother reading Grindr messages” were a huge hit on YouTube.
But one of his most compelling and heartbreaking videos is his discussion on the topic of coming out – with his parents. Here’s what he said about his motivation: “Coming out to my parents was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do but also one of the most rewarding. I hope this video gives you some belief that things can work out in the end even when the situation looks completely hopeless. If we can come out the other side I think most of us can.” Take a look at the video and see the deep emotional story!
