This is a photo take by the incredible New York City blog, Humans of New York (it’s the best, if you don’t follow it, you should). The photo is of a young boy sitting on his stoop in NYC crying with that caption: “I’m homosexual. I’m afraid about what my future will be and that people won’t like me.”


Followers of the page were quick to show their support for little guy, liking and sharing the picture more than 700,000 times.  The photo also has over 45,000 comments of support, including one from Democratic presidential hopeful Hilary Clinton and Ellen Degeneres. Take a look what they had to say:

The viral post comes exactly one week following the Supreme Court’s historic decision to legalise same-sex marriage in all 50 states.

The little boy’s identity is not known as Humans of New York don’t identify their subjects. We hope he’s now feeling the love.
