Another set of twins have decided to share their coming out story via youtube. The Rhodes Bros, deep voiced, A&F looking twins stated they had come out to all of their other family members except their father. They chose the beginning of the year to give dad a phone call and share their sexuality.
With 2015 now here, we think it is time to finally just be ourselves. We hope by our actions today you can finish watching this video feeling encouraged and inspired. Thank you for all the support. We love you.
-The Rhodes Bros
It seems that the Rhodes Bros have a pretty good youtube following with over 56 thousand subscribers and release a new video every Sunday. Those that follow them on Instagram may recall a July 2014 pic with Davey Wavey. No, not everyone associated with Davey Wavey is gay, but there's a good chance (humor people).
So the video below is a great example of two boys coming out to their very accepting father. I remember coming out to my mother, she of course already knew, probably before I did. We haven't had that conversation. I came out to her over the phone as I drove to confront a cheating boyfriend, my first and worst, oh wait, he was a gay twin, too. Anyways. The acceptance of the Rhodes Bros dad reminded me of my mother's acceptance. When it came to telling my father, I never did. I told my mother that she could tell my father when she thought the time was right. What I have seen, my dad's been pretty accepting of the whole difference.
The Rhodes Bros father mentioned that he had been in a job for quite some time that has made him more accepting of differences. It would be interesting to know what that job is.
All in all, congrats to the boys for coming out to their father. But why is dad the last to know? to be told? Was your father the last to know? Are there members of your family that still do not know? Grandparents? siblings?
