Gay People Made A Straight Man Cry With Their Response To The Question 'Is Being Gay A Choice?'

I have always maintained that the fight for LGBT equality can only be won with the help of our straight allies, and this is a noble and fine example. This vlogger (who is straight) changed the life of one young gay man whose own parents not only rejected him when he came out, but subjected him to horrific verbal and physical abuse before tossing him out of his home. The incident brought the vlogger to tears, and his heroic and heartfelt response brought me to them in turn. Hearts and minds are changed one person at a time. But this shows that one person with his heart in the right place really can make a big difference.
