So, this is me and my younger brother, Nick.
If you couldn’t tell, I’m gay.
My brother is thirteen years old, and he took me coming out better than anyone else. You know what he told me?
“It’s not your fault. I still love you. I’m still going to protect you.”
And then he hugged me tighter as I started to cry.
I just wanted to share this because earlier that week he had told his friend that he didn’t like gays, that he didn’t think it was fair that they had a “choice.” Sometimes, people will surprise you. So even when it’s at it’s worst, someone will come along and remind you that they will love and protect you forever.
