Austin Swink was preparing to go on his first mission trip with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when he decided to reveal the news that he was gay to his dad, Vaughn Swink, reports USA Today.
“I got this feeling that I just needed to get it off my chest before I left, because it was weighing on me for so long, not saying anything,” Swink, from Port St Lucie, Florida, said.
He decided to video record his coming out to his dad, and posted the reaction online.
This is the amazing moment Austin came out to his Mormon father. 🏳️🌈 ❤️ pic.twitter.com/Ku0XvpWGvG— Humankind (@humankind) June 9, 2021
