We all know how traumatic the thoughts of coming out to family can be and the strength it requires to build up the courage to do so. The thoughts can weigh heavily on the mind of a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender person and the relief of revealing this hidden side of your identity can be overwhealming to say the least.

These popular youtube vlogging twins decided to kick of their new year by kicking down the closet door and coming out to their father in an extremely emotional youtube video which was broadcast to over 56,000 subscribers has already been seen more than 500,000 times as of today.

They tell their father via telephone in the video who explains “I love you both and that will never change” and adds that he “doesn’t give a damn” and “he loves them both”.

Following the announcement the twins say they feel as though “ten million pounds has been lifted off their shoulders”.

“We think it is time to finally just be ourselves. We hope by our actions today you can finish watching this video feeling encouraged and inspired.,” they posted on their YouTube page, ahead of their video explaining that they are gay to their father by telephone.

The video speaks for itself and the twins are quoted as saying the reaction will hopefully “inspire others to do the same”.
