Coming Out In Public : What Would You Do?

What would you do if you witnessed a parent berating their child in public for being gay?

ABC’s hidden camera show What Would You Do? staged a scene where a teen came out to his anti-gay parents. They captured bystanders’ reactions.

In the middle of a cafe, a son comes out to his dad who reacts by saying things like “My son is not gay!” and “This is a mistake—turn your life around.”

Some bystanders stepped in to defend the teen while others stayed out of it or even left.

Check it out. Some of the responses are very moving!
