The note reads:
“Good morning parents,
I’m gay. I’ve wanted to tell you for a long time. I thought doing it this way would be a piece of cake. I hope you still love me. I mean, it’s hard not to love someone who baked you a cake.
All my friends know and still love me. Your acceptance would be the icing on the cake.
I hope you, much like this cake, are not in tiers.
I hope we can look back on this and say “boy, this one really takes the cake”.
It gets batter.
(Sorry for so many puns)”
Congrats Laurel, on an extremely clever way of coming out of the closet. For all of those wondering, her parents were very accepting of her message and her lifestyle.
And it looks like another child will soon be seeking counseling.
When 6 year old Breanna was video taped crying earlier this month because she realized she wasn’t old enough to marry her favourite NFL player, no one expected she would actually get the chance. But when Houstan Texans player J.J. Watt found the video, which went viral, he launched a campaign to turn those tears to smiles. Reaching out to his fans on Twitter, Watt was able to track down Breanna and give her the imaginary wedding she has always dreamed of.
Regarding the situation, Watt had this to say:
“I brought her flowers, proposed to her with the Ring Pop. I gave her a No. 99 jersey, a white one, to be her wedding dress for the day. It was awesome and it was great and we had our first dance to her favorite artist, Justin Bieber. It was really, really cool … It was fun, it was priceless.”
When asked if they were registered, Watt joked “Yeah, we’re registered at Toys ‘R Us,”
