Gay People Made A Straight Man Cry With Their Response To The Question 'Is Being Gay A Choice?' by George Takei

The incident brought the vlogger to tears, and his heroic and heartfelt response brought me to them in turn.
Hearts and minds are changed one person at a time. But this shows that one person with his heart in the right place really can make a big difference.
