WATCH: Gay Twins Say They Were Bullying Victims, Now Friends With Dolly

Out identical twins Gary and Larry Lane have been open about their sexual orientation for much of their careers, but the two have recently revealed they survived intense antigay bullying as young boys. The two men, whose acclaimed 2011 documentary Hollywood to Dollywood detailed their amazing journey to meet their idol Dolly Parton, share stories of their youth when they were overweight youngsters who were picked on for looking alike (!) and how they leaned on each other for support.

The Lanes filmed the video for the Friend Movement, a campaign aimed at showing “positive anti-bully images through art and media.”
