A young American man has recorded his emotional coming out to his mother and posted it on YouTube.
Ryan Dubs filmed himself with his laptop as he tearfully told his mother that he is gay.
The video has gone viral and been viewed almost 120,000 times.
Dubs said that he made the video because he wanted to help other people.
“When I was contemplating coming out for the last year, I found other similar videos of people coming out to family members on a hidden camera really helpful,” he wrote.
“I noticed that there weren’t very many of these videos, so I wanted to create my own to help other people in the same way that I found these videos helpful.
“My mom reacted in an amazing way, and I really hope that all of you have a similar experience,” Dubs added.
