A Imgur User Literally Made Coming Out His Christmas Present To His Family

It's the thought that counts.

Coming out over the holidays is a tried-and-true gay tradition. But one Imgur user decided to make his coming out part of his Christmas present to his parents.

Keegeroni built a handmade paper "closet" with a stand-in for himself in it and a sign reading "I'm gay."

He posted the present on the photo-sharing site, with a caption reading "I'm making my Christmas present for my family." The response was overwhelming positive, though some commenters thought it wasn't the most appropriate gift.

"Why does it matter what you are?" complained one commenter, "[This] has NOTHING to do with Christmas,"

Others, though, rose to Keegeroni's defense.

"Christmas is about family. Coming out means sharing a deeply personal secret with the family. Sounds like it has a lot to do with Christmas," replied Mills2016. "[He] is giving a very personal gift to the family. I think it's awesome, providing the family is accepting."
