After coming out on Facebook, a teen named Zach Gibson received the loveliest, most supportive letter from his mother. The No H8 Campaign shared the post, and it went viral – prompting Gibson to comment, "I'm Zach, the one this is addressed to. When I came out last week, I never expected this much support. I knew my mom would be fine with it, but I never expected this letter and I never expected this many people to spread it around. This means so much."
