Fun-Loving Teen Memorably Comes Out to Parents on Disneyland Ride
Talk about making a splash.
A 16-year-old girl from California named Gina (her last name has not been given) came out of the closet to her parents while riding Splash Mountain during a visit last month to Disneyland.
“I am not the type of person to have a deep, sit-down conversation, so I wanted to tell them in a lighthearted and fun way,” Gina told BuzzFeed about the big announcement. “I love funny ride photos so I figured I could make the sign just in case I decided to go for it, and I did."
Gina also said her family have been very accepting of her news, but the bigger news for her may be how everyone has reacted. “People have responded saying I’ve inspired them to do the same thing, which I think is the coolest part of it all."
