    A letter written from a dad to his gay son Nate is going viral on the Internet because of its simple, hopeful message of love.

    “I overheard your phone conversation with Mike last night about your plans to come out to me,” it reads. “The only thing I need you to plan is to bring home OJ and bread after class. We are out, like you now. I’ve known you were gay since you were six, I’ve loved you since you were born.”

    He signs it “Dad” and finishes with a post script: “Your mom and I think you and Mike make a cute couple.”
