Even more interesting is that the boy’s parents in this video are Muslim. The main character talks about how he’s both liberal and gay and looking for a community that will accept him.

You could easily substitute “devout Muslim” for “devout Christian,” or any fundamentalist strand of faith, and the story would still resonate with many people who don’t fit the narrow boxes that were prescribed for them at birth.
