Twitter user and YouTube personality Aaron Rhodes received a lot of support after tweeting out pictures of his “special weekend celebrating pride with mom” in June 2017. Both Aaron and his twin brother Austin identify as gay, coming out in January 2015.

Fans online were particularly proud of Aaron’s mom who wore a shirt that said ‘Free Mom Hugs,’ commenting on the fact that not all members of the queer community are accepted by their parents and that they appreciated her dedication to the community, not just to her sons.
