"Coming Out Straight," a clever satire about the dumb things parents say when their kids come out, is getting some attention on YouTube.
The short film comes from GreenLight Films, made in association with Humanity Pride Productions.
When 16-year-old Peyton comes out STRAIGHT to his two gay dads, there is hell to pay!
The humor comes out of the reversal of expectations, as the gay dads wonder where they went wrong, just like straight parents do when their kids come out. "It's a phase," one of the dad says. "... Sleep with a boy!"
"This is insane," the same dad says. "You need help!"
Through humor, the filmmakers shatter a lot of stereotypes.
