Going into that scene, there have been a lot of scenes like that in television before where kids come out to their parents. And for one, I love the fact that the father is accepting of it. I mean, that was groundbreaking right there. I also really wanted to take it from a very real perspective because a lot of times, the scenes, the kids, you know, are very - I’m queer, I’m here, and I’m proud of it, you know?
And that’s not the case when kids come out to their parents. It’s terrifying, especially at an early age. So I really just wanted to make sure there was a lot of honesty in that scene and it wasn’t so forced or arrogant but it really was just this kid that was terrified of telling his father the truth.
