VIDEO: Happy Father’s Day! Dads With Their Gay Children

Plus matching GIFs that you can use to make your own dad cry.

Get a box of tissues ready: There’s a touching new video that features fathers talking to their children about when they came out of the closet, and it is a very moving tribute to all those great dads out there on Father’s Day.

The film is an Upworthy exclusive, and it really is gorgeous. With so many horrible stories about LGBTQ youth homelessness and families who evict their children after they come out, it is refreshing to hear these reaffirming dads talk candidly with their kids. Make sure you send your own dad some love this Sunday, perhaps by sharing this video with him. There’s also an entire series of GIFs from the film that you can find here.
