Dad Gets Born This Way Tattoo To Support Bisexual Son (VIDEO)

Dad Gets Born This Way Tattoo To Support Bisexual Son (VIDEO)

 

Getting a “Born This Way” tattoo to support equality–nice! Getting a “Born This Way” tattoo to support your bisexual son–priceless!

Watch the video and you decide:

The video description tells that Dylan, the young man in the video, came out as bisexual last year. He was most nervous about coming out to his “old school Italian father.” Dylan had previously got a “Born This Way” tattoo on his wrist in Lady GaGa’s handwriting having met her, and the tattoo meant a lot to him.

This video was reportedly filmed recently after Dylan came home from Spring Break. His father has “Born This Way” written in Italian as a show of “deep love for his only son.”

Dylan’s sister is the one to have uploaded the video to YouTube.

How does Dylan feel about all this? He writes on the YouTube page:

“I can’t believe this happened! I am so grateful for my family and I hope that everyone watches this and takes from it that acceptance is possible! You were born this way!”

That's so sweet and fantastic to see such love and support, every parent of a bisexual/gay/lesbian/transgender child should follow in this fathers foot steps.
