I can still remember how quickly my heart was racing when I came out to my mom fifteen years. She was - and still is - the most important person in the world to me, and I knew that I was putting everything on the line. But my mom responded as she always has: with the gift of open arms and unconditional love.

Fifteen years later, on the anniversary of my coming out, it’s time for me to give my mom a gift. I’m surprising her with a trip to Paris. It’s a first class trip for a first class mom.

With everything going on in the world right now, I hope this video reminds you of all the good that’s worth fighting for.
