Coming out as a gay is not always easy for a person. When a person thinks of talking about his sexuality the only thing that strikes on his mind is the consequences of the confession.
Many famous personalities have been abandoned by their family and friends after they managed to come forth with their gay identity. But there are also some fortunate ones who get accepted by the closed ones and their society as they are.
How To Look Good Naked" actor Gok Wan is one of such figures who has demonstrated such courage and got rewarded with acceptance.
How did Gok Wan confess his sexuality?
With some impressive guts, Gok Wan came out as a gay to his family at the very young age in a family dinner. He revealed how he confessed him being a gay and how his father accepted his sexuality during an interview with GQ Magazine. He said-
"I was dating a guy, and I basically used him because I knew I'd have to take someone home eventually and thought I'd try it out with him.My sister and brother were there, we all sat down and it was just the most excruciating meal ever.”
Gok then added-
“My family is normally Shameless meets The Royle Family. But this night it was so weird. I had left home and no longer had a bedroom, so my dad left the table early, which he never did, and went into the living room and made a bed for the two of us with an open fire.It was extraordinary, his quiet way of showing his acceptance. The reason I've never told that story is that my dad and I have never discussed it.”
After Gok had admitted the truth and his father accepted his sexuality, he revealed he went to the bathroom and wept buckets.
Single or has a partner?
