What happens when a straight guy pretends to come out to his parents? Comedy gold.

Josh Healey's pretend coming-out was slightly different than most. Also, more hilarious. If you just want to read it, click the transcript button below.

Josh Healey, a writer and teacher, got to go to his cousin's wedding. It just happened to be a gay wedding. And his favorite thing about it?

"Here were two women getting married, and it wasn't a big deal."

Which made him think...


"What would it be like if straight folks had to come out too?"

This is what can happen when you have super-liberal parents and you come to the realization you are straight. (I wish all coming-out stories were this hilarious.)

So brave. So very brave. And shareable if you click "share" below.
