Video: 'The Dance That Rebuilt A Relationship Between A Father & His Gay Son'

We're gonna have to have Iyanla come fix OUR lives because this is too much for a Monday morning! We're not ready for this! (We're looking at you, Oprah!)

OWN writes:

"Andre, a 44-year-old father, helped foster a passion for dancing in his son Jovan, who is now a 24-year-old professional dancer living in Los Angeles. Three years ago, Jovan came out to his parents. Andre has struggled since, believing he has failed Jovan in some way, that Jovan has chosen to be gay and is too 'ashamed' to tell his own father that Jovan is gay. Jovan feels his father's reaction is a rejection of who he is. Before this father and son can heal, Iyanla has a special assignment for Jovan: To create a dance piece expressing who he really is to his father. Watch Jovan's powerful expression and see how it moves his father."

 

Powerful.
