A video showing an 80-year-old man
getting inked to support his gay grandson has gone viral on YouTube.
In the nearly 6-minute video, Grandpa
Frank gets a small wrist tattoo of an equal sign.
“So what made you want to come in and
get tattooed today?” the tattoo artist asks.
“Well, I wanted to support my
grandson, who's gay,” Frank responds. “I think it's important
that we show support for him.”
“He thought [coming out] was a big
deal. And I didn't think it was.”
“Well, how long ago did that happen?”
“It's been five years. And the whole
family supported him immediately,” Frank answers.
Frank's grandson, Joe, also has an
equal sign tattooed on his hip. At the end of the video, grandfather
and grandson compared tattoos. (The video is embedded on this page.
