Son comes out as gay to Mormon dad

PORT ST. LUCIE – Coming out as gay is hard, but coming out as gay to your Mormon dad is really hard.

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. He had always had a strong relationship with his dad but he was anxious about how he would react.

“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 said. He decided to video record his coming out to his dad, and posted the reaction online.
