Over 270,000 people have seen a young gay dad's coming out story on YouTube, and now his wife and children have appeared in a video with him, showing how their lives have moved on.  25-year-old Ben Hobson told his tale on camera a few months ago, with the South Dakota dad describing it as a "crazy, messed up, loving, hurtful, redemptive, free story."Shortly after his mother died, Ben married Keeley and they had two children. He says his should've been a "perfect family," but he knew something was wrong.He developed a drinking problem "because it numbed my feelings," and he tearfully describes realising later "those feelings were GAY feelings."He tells his story below.

The video's been getting a lot of attention in recent days, prompting Ben to do a follow-up, letting us know how they've been getting along, and introducing us to his wife Keeley."We're still feeling a lot of emotions right now," realises Ben. "There's a lot of emotion and love still there."

Brody, I think it's fair to say that the first link in your post, his coming out vidéo, is a good place to start; but, once having viewed it everyone should then go Ben Hobson's YouTube Channel, and experience his story, vidéo-by-vidéo, as he has lived his life, day-by-day, for the past year or more.

This will likely benefit the youngsters visiting here experiencing many of the same issues Ben has faced more I'm supposing; and, help broaden the understanding of our older Membership, especially those like myself who had no real hardships coming out and have been out all of their lives as I have been.

The young man, Ben Hobson has deleted his coming out video as well as most of the videos on his Youtube account,  He said that he was never really gay -  just was just confused by a "bromance" he had last year.  Either that or he's gone back in the closet, I guess.
