A straight man's perspective on what it's like to be gay is shared in this video, a response to recently being de-friended on Facebook by a former friend.
This individual's brother is gay, and the Facebook de-friending took place after he posted photos of his beloved brother and his partner getting married.
Condemned for his "anti-God" post, the man was shamed by someone he considered a friend, which got him thinking: What if it had been his own wedding?
What if hadn't been a distant friend who confronted him in such a way, but a close family member? And how do gay people cope with such an event?
This brings him to tears in the video confession below. Take a look:
It's clear that his empathy is both profound and genuine as he encourages other straight people to look at the issue of sexual orientation from this perspective.
