In a world where homophobia is still on pertinent, the coming out story of this 25-year-old is heartwarming. Gaurang, who has lived with his grandparents since he was 7-years-old shares the story of how he came out to them in this Humans Of Bombay post.
Though his grandparents were shocked at first, there were quick to hug him and say ‘all we want is for you to do good in life.’
Last year, after coming out to a friend, I thought I should tell them too. For the first 10 minutes, there was complete silence. Then nana put his hand on his chest and broke down. Nani cried too.
This incident encouraged him to come out to the world on Facebook and even invite his friends from the trans community home. His grandparents even volunteered to be a part of the pride parade, but sadly due to their health, they couldn't make it, he shares.
They’ve come such a long way— from being upset initially to wanting to walk pride parades with me!
He shared how he now feels comfortable wearing make-up around them and even has them read his articles on the community. His grandparents give hope to those who fear being ostracised from society due to their sexual orientation or gender choices. These adorable Nana Nani are an inspiration!
