My Gay Son | Robert Wright

My son is not gay.

Neither is his brother.

When I opened the door, he cried.

“I already knew, Dad.”

“I love you, Dad.”

 

My son is not gay.

Neither is his brother.

Before I turned the knob, he cried.

“Don’t say it out loud, Dad.”

“I love you, Dad.”

 

I am my gay son.
