"A few days ago I went live. I was reading my dm and someone told me that they are scared to go tell their parents that they are gay. So I said I’m gonna help you don’t worry. I’m gonna go live and say I’m gay just to show you that this is not as bad as it seems. Take from what I say and put it into your own words” Raphael explained.

Raphael added that his friend was supposed to emulate his behavior while telling his parents about his preference in the same gender.
