A mum finally accepted her bisexual daughter because of Love, Simon and it’s gone viral
Love, Simon has prompted a mother to finally, tearfully accept her bisexual daughter as who she is – and it’s gone viral.
The Twitter thread – the first tweet of which received more than 92,000 retweets and likes – details Jade’s four-year journey from battling prejudice and attempts to make her straight all the way to tears of joy.
Love, Simon has had a massive effect on audiences, not least on celebrities like Neil Patrick Harris and Kristen Bell, who bought out screenings.
It has made more than twice the amount it cost to create, according to Box Office Mojo.
And 18-year-old Jade tweeted that it was only when she saw Love, Simon with her mum that she received the acceptance she had first asked for four years ago.
She wrote that “in 2014 I came out to my mum as bisexual, & she told me she would never look at me the same.”
“I cried in the bathroom for 6 hours & my entire family ignored me for days. I was called disgusting & my dad told me I’d ‘get over it eventually’, my mum tried to force me to be straight.”
Jade continued: “in 2016 I told my mum I had a crush on a girl, we cried in a parking lot & she told me she wasn’t okay with it, I asked the girl out anyways.
“In 2017 I flew over 4000 miles to meet this girl as we celebrated being together for over a year, we had our first kiss: on a ferris wheel.”
If those pictures don’t make you smile, you may be dead inside.
