Straight Guy’s Sweet Letter to Gay Older Brother Goes Viral

"You don’t have to find your identity alone!"

A New Jersey gay man warmed hearts this week when he shared an unexpected note of support from his younger brother.

“I have something incredibly humbling to share with you,” Erick Endres tweeted. “Earlier today, I came home from work, and found a card in an envelope placed on top of my pillow with my name. Inside the envelope was a card/letter handwritten by my youngest brother. He knows and accepts me.”


I just want to let you know that I love you. We don’t have time in this life to be sad or hide who we really are because before you know it, it could be too late.

Love whoever you want, just love hard. I support and will support you in any way possible. I know we’re not the closest, but I just wanna let you know that I know and I don’t care because it doesn’t change you as a person.

So if you ever need to get anything off your chest, I’m right here. You don’t have to find your identity alone!

I love, I care, and I support you, Erick.

Love, Sean

“I’m incredibly humbled for all the love and support I’ve received from not only my brother, but the people that have liked and shared this,” Endres later tweeted. “I felt that I had to share it because maybe I can help someone who has been struggling like I have.”

Now wipe away those tears and call your siblings!
