Back in 2018, a teen named Louis shared this text exchange with his father….
Dad’s text said,
“Send me the pic of u and ur boy toy.”
It was followed by two sweet photos of Louis with his boyfriend…
Louis says that his father wanted the photos so he could show off the cute couple at work.
The tweet has since been liked over 160K times and shared by 7K people and continues to resurface,
After a few days of overwhelmingly positive response, Louis added this to the thread. He told Buzzfeed News,
“I just love that my dad was showing off me and Christian.
Everyone was telling how much they love my dad — that he was the father of the year.”
One commenter apparently said,
“Oh, I’m straight and my dad doesn’t even do this with me.”
“It’s not even us being gay. It’s just my dad accepting who I’m in love with.”
Louis’ father, Louis Sr., was happy to learn his love had spread so far.
“It makes me feel good that people are out there giving me props.”
He said that Louis Jr. has always been supported and loved in their home.
“Always. Ever since day one. Ever since he came out to us.”
No word on whether Louis and Christian are still together… hope so.
Imma take this time to appreciate the parents i have. I’m beyond blessed to have been born into this life. To have parents who love my brother and I for us. Wouldn’t give it up for the world.❤️ pic.twitter.com/hNgkqb4oJ8— Golden Boy☀️ (@ninocachondo) April 4, 2018
