Parents Throw Daughter The Best Pride Party Ever After She Came Out To Them

coming out to your parents about your sexuality probably isn’t the easiest thing in the world, especially if you’re only 17 years old, and have a strong fear of rejection and homophobia. But for Kinsey Ratzman from New Jersey coming out of the closet about her sexual orientation turned out to be the most awesome experience ever. Why? Because her parents responded to the news by deciding to throw her a surprise “Pride Party!”

They told her that they were going to be having an early 4th July party, and then while she was at the mall with her cousin her sneaky parents got busy with the preparations. They covered the entire house with rainbow-themed decorations and they even made a bunch of rainbow-colored food. Her aunt even baked her a “vegan gay cake” because Kinsey is the only vegan in her family.

It’s been a pretty dark time for the gay community recently due to the devastating Pulse nightclub shootings in Florida, but Kinsey’s family could not have responded to their daughter’s sexuality in a more amazing way. If only everybody had parents like this!

When my daughter came out I said, that's nice. I didn't and dont care. It's not an issue. Can you imagine celebrating someone's sexuality? No, I can't either. I long for the day when this doesn't have to be celebrated and no one cares. That's equality.

I don't understand why its so important for express their sexuality in this day and age...who cares if you are gay or straight. I just don't see why people have to do this. as long as you are loved by your family and friends.....why do you have to make it so public about your sexuality.

Spoken like someone who's never had to hide their sexual identity because to openly express who they are would expose them to violence or rejection. Enjoy your privilege.
