I imagine coming out to one's family would be a nerve-wracking ordeal: There's always the fear they won't take it well or they'll be unsupportive.
These were most likely the thoughts going through 22-year-old Bri's mind as she prepared to come out to her mother.
Fortunately, her mother took the news very well. She knew her daughter's sexual orientation all along, as only a mother could.
Recently, Bri posted a video to Tumblr of her mother reenacting her initial response to Bri's coming out. In the video, Bri's mother stands in front of a closet door and acts like she's addressing Bri in the closet.
Bri's mother asked,
Is that the announcement?
Because for us, it was like [opens door], 'You coming out? No? Not yet? [closes door]. OK, well, let us know when you're coming out!'
Her reaction was undoubtedly a major relief for Bri, who wrote,
My [mom] says this was how it was when I came out. I love her. She's a minister everyone. Religion shouldn't involve hate.
