Viral video | Parents disown, assault 19-year-old gay son when he comes out to them

Posted to YouTube on Wednesday. So far, it's had more than 1.3 million views in about 24 hours:

How not to react when your child tells you that he's gay

A lot of people have asked about donations. A GoFundMe page has been set up to assist with living expenses. http://www.gofundme.com/dnoqgg

A perfect example of how much hate and intolerance still exists today. This family gave a young man two options: attend a pray the gay away intervention, or face being disowned by the very people who are supposed to love him unconditionally.

Disclaimer: This is a 19 year old friend of mine who is currently staying with very supportive friends. He is safe and removed from the situation. I am posting this on his behalf per his request. I was not witness to the events that transpired, but was present immediately after to help him relocate.
