Coming Out Story Takes the Cake — Literally
Choosing to come out to your parents can be a tough topic to discuss, but one 15-year-old girl hoped it would be a piece of cake. Tumblr user ellende-generes backed a cake and left a note for her parents on her coming out day.
Ellende-generes, also known by her real name Laurel, posted up a pick of a cake with bright green frosting stating, "I'm Gay," and a note coming out to her parents.
The note read as:
Good morning parents,
I’m gay. I've wanted to tell you for a long time. I thought doing it this way would be a piece of cake. I hope you still love me. I mean, it's hard not to love someone who baked you a cake.
All my friends know and still love me. Your acceptance would be the icing on the cake.
I hope you, much like this cake, are not in tiers.
I hope we can look back on this and say "boy, this one really takes the cake."
it gets batter.
Love, Laurel (sorry for so many puns)
Laurel posted an update on her Tumblr page that read:
My mom saw it and cried of happiness. We hugged and cried together. Then, we all ate the cake and talked. I am very luck to have such supporting parents and to have so much support from you guys. Thanks everyone! Have a gay day!
Here dad was very supportive, went into Laurel's bedroom, hugged her, told him he loved her and said the cake and note were perfect.
