[From the web] ‘Your fight is mine’: This dad’s pride story will leave you in tears -RAPPLER.com

Coming out and navigating life in a world that continues to be prejudiced against the LGBTQ community isn’t easy.

It’s even more difficult for many when they think about how their family – and parents, especially – would react. More often than not, it’s a journey.

And this pride story, of Twitter user “Isko Speaks,” proves that it’s a journey that can be worth it.

In a tweet that’s since been shared and liked by thousands, he talked about his dad’s experience while attending the 2018 Pride March in Marikina City.

“Isko Speaks,” who is bisexual, is in Japan for an internship, so his sister decided they would go to the Pride March for him.

“The moment my sister told me my parents went to the Pride March with her, I was already really happy.
