Father Posts Fit After Son's Revealing News

Tyler, 15, is from Vancouver, Canada and decided to come out as gay. He told each member of his family individually. While his sisters and mother supported him, his father was far from happy.

Tyler told The Huffington Post B.C., "I just wanted to be open about it. I didn't want to hide it anymore.” On the other hand, his father made the decision to lash out in a series of Facebook messages. His father wrote, “You are trying to ruin me. This is worse than death. I’m going to puke.”

Tyler didn't want his last name used and said, "I'm upset with what my dad said, but I don't hate him. I'm hoping there's still the possibility that he could change, even [if] it takes [a]while. Maybe he could accept me, because that's all I want ... I just want him to be there for me.”

Currently, Tyler lives with his aunts. He wanted to go public to share his story.

Dara Parker of Qmunity, a Canadian resource center for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, said “It’s a sad story but unfortunately it’s not surprising. We average between 20 and 40 youth each week and unfortunately we hear these stories more often than not.”

Tyler has since received a lot of online support. He added, "People need to know there are so many other people who would want to love you and be your friend, so (that's) what really matters.”
