Dad To Son Who Came Out: “[Being] Gay Is Revolting”

A Queerty reader sent us an email over the weekend detailing his father’s abusive language and attitude since the reader came out—including starting vicious sexual rumors about his own child. “He has told me things that are unimaginable to the average person,” writes the reader. “His last email included horrible assumptions of gays… I am physically and emotionally sick of being harassed by him.”

Below is a screen-grab of the email in question, which reads like the inverse of the note from a wonderful dad that went viral last week.

It’s possible this is a hoax but, sadly, we’ve seen real emails from parents that make this one read like a birthday card.
