25-year-old Ben Hobson’s journey has not been easy. His mother died nearly six years ago. Shortly afterwards, he married his wife and they produced two children together. Yet despite having what many would consider the “perfect family,” Ben was deeply unhappy and developed a drinking problem.
Earlier this year, he quit drinking. After getting sober, he realized the root of his unhappiness: He had been living a lie.
Ben is gay. He recently released a short video, telling his story.
“This is my crazy, messed up, loving, hurtful, redemptive, free story,” he writes on his YouTube channel.
