A popular British YouTube vlogger decided to post his video of him coming out as a gay to his 5-year-old brother. Oliver Potter who goes by OliverVlogss on YouTube decided to record his conversation with his brother Alfie, explaining the truth about himself.
He started the video by asking Alfie whether he knows that men and women love each other and have babies, and what he would think if he said he wanted to be in love with another man. It’s really surprising that Alfie answered, “Cool.”
Oliver also asked Alfie if he noticed that he hasn’t got a girlfriend followed by a question of what he would feel if he married a man.
“If you married a man it’s going to be so cool. I saw it in one movie and in one movie a man was in love with another man and then everyone was saying ‘cool.’ Cool cool cool. Love is love, love is love,” Alfie replied.
The video has been viewed over 1 million times and he already has 25,000 subscribers as of writing. Netizens were thrilled with this video and showed support by sending them heartwarming messages.
Coming out to your family can be very scary but being true to yourself is what is the most important thing.
“My brother’s reaction made me realize what a kind and gentle soul he is. He is right… Love is love, you really can be who you want to be you just have to pluck up the courage to make it happen. Remember, always stay true to yourself,” Oliver wrote.
