Son Outs Himself At Father’s Birthday Dinner In Charming Sydney Mardi Gras Ad

"A simple difference shouldn't be a big deal."

The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras festival is currently under way in Australia, and event organizers released a hilarious and heartwarming video to celebrate its theme of “Creating Equality” in support of same-sex marriage.

The short opens on a family celebrating a father’s birthday, when the son nervously gets up to make an announcement.

The “Creating Equality” theme is representative of Australia’s continued fight for marriage equality, and the video encourages people to not make same-sex marriage a “big deal.”

Sydney Mardi Gras, which runs until March 5, is hoping to shine a spotlight on ways the community can work together to eliminate prejudice and discrimination throughout the country.
