Proud parents and coming out!


When we out ourselves to friends and family, we always hope for the best – but one mom went a step further when her son came out: she placed an ad in the local newspaper to proudly tell the world her son is gay!

The ad was published in Houston Chronicle:

The parents of Drake are pleased to announce that their son has come out. Drake is currently a senior in High School where he is a captain of the tennis team, ASB Vice President and NHS member. He is a church deacon and enjoys film making and baking. And yes, he adores Barbra Streisand.”

You can see Drake talking about his experiences regarding coming out in this YouTube video, noting “As much as the ladies will hate to hear this, I’m gay. And while I’m not proud of this because I don’t like to promote society’s unrealistic and unachievable standards of beauty, I did love to play Barbies with my older sister, Gabrielle.”

We doubt Drake will have any problems regarding his sexual orientation with such an awesome mother!
