After some nerves in making the call, they get through to their father and try to explain, getting majorly choked up and overwhelmed before finally telling him, "I'm gay and Austin is too...we just wanted to call and tell you."
Their dad's reaction is perfect, coming from a place of love and understanding: "It's the way things are, you know? You grew up in a lot different generation than me...I just don't really know what to say. You know I love you both. That'll never change. You've gotta live your lives. You've gotta do what you gotta do."
He added, "It is what it is...I'm not gonna sit here and try to tell you you're not or try to say why? Or try to say change."
Their dad further assured them, "You're living your lives and that's all you can do in life is live it."
