Austin and Aaron Rhodes: The Famous “Twins Come Out To Dad” twins

So I’m sure by now you’ve all seen the two gorgeous gay twins, Austin and Aaron Rhodes, on YouTube that recorded their phone call with their father, where they came out to him. They’re 19 and now starting their lives. They posted the video and it became an instant YouTube hit with over 14 million views (and counting). The video has made headlines across America and I can say that I can’t honestly be happier for them. It’s very hard to come out to your parents and I honestly think it’s surprisingly harder to come out to your parents with a sibling than most think. Either way, their story and video is amazing.

Second, the video showed their public support for their LGBT employees and the LGBT community and it is just *AWESOME*. Being a marketing specialist, I must say this was so well done. The message is simple: “Pride” – there was no need for anything else in their title and the video spoke for itself. The music selection was just excellent, and I’m not saying that b/c I LOVE Coldplay and that song, but it really works here.
