A gay teen’s heartfelt family moment has gone viral on YouTube. Dan Brian says he made the decision to come out to his mother publicly to provide support for other gay teens struggling with their identity.

“Finally got the strength to come to my mom...” Brian writes on his YouTube page. “I decided to post this so that I could share my experience with you. Hopefully it will be an inspiration to those who do not have such supportive families.”

Ever the skeptics, Twitter users took the web to question the video’s authenticity. Dan responded to his critics, saying, “If [my mom] did know [it was being filmed] she would’ve worn better pants!”
