“The best thing about when Brendan told me he was gay, I didn’t have to take anything back....I hadn’t made any derogatory comments about gay people, I hadn’t told him they were sick or twisted or God would punish them — some of these absurd things that people say about homosexual people. I didn’t have to take anything back. I said it to him. We were both in tears,” recalls father Brian Burke about the day his son, Brendan Burke, came OUT.
So sad... we'll never know what Brian could have brought to the LGBT community.
