A man who came out of the closet at the age of 17 has disinvited his older brother to his wedding after he made homophobic comments. The man's brother had previously been supportive of his sexuality but called him recently to express his belief that being gay is wrong and not what God wants. The man was shocked and hurt by his brother's comments and decided to disinvite him from his wedding. The brother's wife and three-year-old daughter will also not be attending the wedding. The man feels a sense of betrayal by his brother and family, who he thought was his safe spot in the family. This story highlights the ongoing struggle that some members of the LGBTQ+ community face within their own families and communities.

Brother disinvited from gay wedding for homophobic views 💔

A gay man shares his story of betrayal and hurt after his older brother expressed homophobic views, claiming being gay is wrong and against God's will. The man, who had hoped to make his brother the best man at his upcoming wedding, was instead forced to disinvite him after he refused to accept his sexuality and his fiancé. The situation is made all the more painful by the fact that the man's brother had previously been supportive, and by the implication that his three-year-old nieces will not be allowed to attend the wedding. While the man's mother is supportive, the rest of his dad's family share his brother's views, leaving him feeling betrayed and alone. Despite hoping for a compromise, the man ultimately had to make a difficult decision for his own wellbeing and happiness. The story highlights the ongoing struggle of the LGBTQ+ community for acceptance and understanding, and the painful reality of rejection by loved ones.
