Sometimes dads can surprise you…
Coming out to your family can be extremely hard as you don’t know how they’ll react. Sometimes the reaction can surprise you – as demonstrated by this funny and thought-provoking short film, The G-Word.
The G-Word centers on the character of Daniel and his attempts to come out to his parents, which don’t exactly go to plan.
The short is written, acted and produced by Carl Loughlin and is supported by the UK’s LGBT Foundation for National Coming Out Day.
‘I made the film as I know someone who was in a similar situation to Daniel,’ Carl told Gay Star News.
‘[On coming out] The main thing is to remember that you are still the same person before and after you come out and if you want to speak to someone about it you can talk to friends and LGBT organisations, just don’t feel pressured,’
‘A lot of the time it’s not as bad as you fear.’
