A video of a young man coming out to his mother has gone viral on YouTube.

The 11-minute video, titled Coming out LIVE to my mom, has racked up nearly 64,000 views 6 weeks.

In the clip, Ryan becomes emotional as he announces his sexuality to his mother in their living room.

“I'm gay,” a sobbing Ryan says.

“Oh, that's okay sweetie,” his mother replies. “Did you think I'd be mad or something? It's okay.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

“I made this video because when I was contemplating coming out for the last year, I found other similar videos of people coming out to family members on a hidden camera really helpful,” the video's description reads. “I noticed that there weren't very many of these videos, so I wanted to create my own to help other people in the same way that I found these videos helpful. If you've created a similar one, I guarantee you I've seen it, so thank you so much for helping me. My mom reacted in an amazing way, and I really hope that all of you have a similar experience.”
