Seven year old Padawan Colin Gilpatrick wrote a letter to George Lucas after discovering that Jedi could not get married:
Lucasfilm responded with a grab bag of goodies and an a-okay for Colin to wed.
It's too cute, I can't handle it!
Colin's got a few good years to train in the force before setttling down, but it's nice to know he's got the official Lucasfilm blessing when the time comes.
YouTube personalities Austin and Aaron Rhodes (aka “The Rhodes Bros“) decided to finally come out of the closet to their family and friends in 2015.
In this heartwarming video they call up their father, and tell him they are gay for the very first time.
There’s a lot of stalling and a lot of tears before they finally build up the courage to do it, but when it’s all said and done, he is very supportive.
“You know I love you both,” he says. “That’ll never change.”
The brothers said afterwards that they had never been so nervous in their life, but now feel a huge weight has been lifted off of their shoulders.
“We hope by our actions today you can finish watching this video feeling encouraged and inspired,” they write to their viewers.
