The parents of a high school senior celebrated their son's coming out gay with an ad in the Houston Chronicle.

“The parents of Drake are pleased to announce that their son, has come out,” reads the ad. “Drake is currently a senior in High School where he is a captain of the tennis team, ASB Vice President, and NHS member. He is a church deacon and enjoys film making and baking. And yes, he adores Barbra Streisand.”

The ad ran Sunday in the paper's Celebrations section.

Joan Wilson, Drake's mother, told the Texas Observer that she placed the ad in response to the recent repeal of Houston's Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO). Voters in November rejected HERO, which prohibited discrimination based on more than a dozen characteristics, including sexual orientation and gender identity.

“I couldn't think of a better place than Houston, out of the entire country, where they needed to hear my message of pride,” she said.

The Wilsons, though, don't live in Texas, but in Washington state. And Drake came out in a YouTube video when he was sixteen. Joan Wilson founded the Society of Lucky Mothers after her son's coming out to help other mothers celebrate their LGBT children.
