Out With Dad is important to me because it is absolutely A-M-A-Z-I-N-G, the actors portray their characters so realistically that I sometimes think that they are their character (sorry if that doesn’t make any sense) another reason why I love Out With Dad is because it has been helping people all over the world with coming out and realising their sexuality.
Out With Dad has also made me think about my sexuality because I like a boy but I have started to think that I might like girls too. I don’t know if it’s just a phase that I’m going through or if I am gay or bisexual but I told my mum about it and she said “Your only 13 you don’t need to label yourself.” I know she is right but at one point I felt slightly attracted to a girl, well actually two girls, and they are: American actress Naya Rivera, because she is absolutely beautiful and I had a dream about us kissing and a girl (I will not tell you her name) that I met a while ago and about a month or two ago I saw her again and she had completely changed, she was absolutely gorgeous I felt slightly attracted to her but we can’t be together because I don’t know what sexual orientation I am and we might become related.
Anyway that is why Out With Dad is important to me sorry it’s sooooo long but I had to share how I feel. BTW I am team Vanessa all the way and is season 3 the last season or will there be a 4th season?
Lots of love from SCOTLAND!!!! 🙂 <3
i’m pretty sure both my mum and best friend are bi or at least not totally straight, and because i’ve suspected that for a while, i was confident about coming out to them. but because they’re not sure of their own sexualities, and don’t want to be labelled or change their identity, they almost don’t believe me, and don’t engage with me about it. it made me a bit sad at first, but online resources like out with dad give me a sense of community when i need it and don’t find it elsewhere. thanks xxxx
I’d have to seek advice from you below. Which is not one thing I usually do! I enjoy studying a post which will make people feel. Also, many thanks for allowing me personally to review!
Out with dad helped me with coming out to my friends and family. First I was stuck because I was afraid that they would react negative. But when I told them they we’re surprised, but also really sweet :). They said:’We don’t care what you are, if you’re happy we’re happy.’ Out with dad really helped me so I can understand the ‘gay world’. I REALLY want to see season 3 ^-^. I really LOVE the show 🙂
Thank you ‘Out With Dad’ 🙂
First and foremost, I would like to state that I am obsessed with the Out With Dad web series. It’s amazing and have caused laughter and tears all in one episode. Out With Dad is important to me because I can relate to many of the characters in the series. I’m a 15 year old lesbian living in Atlanta, Georgia. There’s a large lgbt community and I have a lot of support from friends and even teachers. But the biggest problem for me being a lesbian is that no one in my entire family is supportive therefore I choose not to tell them. They are extremely religious and will shun me. I’m just not ready for that yet. I started self harming and having suicidal thoughts because of the pressure that came with my sexuality. Many times my parents have suspected that I may be a lesbian and yelled about how that’s unacceptable and a sin. And that’s how they react to suspicion so I can only imagine how it would be if I actually came out to them. It just sucks. But at least I know I have people who are there for me when no one else is. Thanks OWD. I appreciate everything.
PS: Sorry this is so long. I’ve been dying to tell my story to someone.
Out with dad has helped me accept who I am and understand that when some people knock you down there are other people around the corner to help pick you up and for me this web series has helped pick me up when I am knocked down and discouraged So thank you all who are apart of this web series for just being there when no one else was. <3
I’m from Argentina,with Out With Dad I finally found my sexuality and I accepted the fact to be lesbian,this serie helped me in this process and I’m so glad for be who I am.Thanks you so much for helped me in that process♥
Why is OWD important to me?
I just try to remember when I actually started watching OWD. I think I just finished another webseries (Anyone But Me) and that was plainly.. amazing. Then I just kinda klicked on Youtube randomly and there it was. Out With Dad. I was hookes with it and I just could identify so strongly.
I was already out of the closet. But anyway it helped me a lot. I started getting trust into my friends and to become more confident. It showed the different stages most of the people coming out are going through absolutely stunning and Kate Conway and Will Conlon are doing marvellous jobs (the other characters, too, of course) and they play their parts just so freaking amazing…
So, when I think about the possibility that OWD had been online around 5 years ago, maybe I wouldn’t have been so insecure about coming out with my own dad. He actually coped pretty amazing (I shouldn’t use this word that often, it kinda looses its meaning…), I wasn’t totally expecting this. But if I had watched the interaction between Rose and Nathan before I actually came out, maybe I wouldn’t have stressed out myself about it (I don’t know if I make any sense, because it’s rather late and/ or I haven’t slept very much the last couple nights).
So, conclusion. Why is OWD important?
It’s a great story, it doesn’t get any boring or predictable. The actors are just _______ (enter your favortie word for downright amazing) and the storylines aren’t loose or anything, they’re trustworthy. So yeah, I hope that OWD can get every attention possible, because it can help. It actually gives advice to people coming out (the note for PFLAG at the end of the episodes for example).
Yeah. Enough of my gibberish.
enjoy you holidays y’all.
I think video like” Out with dad” is to get every one to know that when plp come out they r like u and me they have feeling and they can get hurt just like us too. It help other teen as they come to the age of know who they are and to know they are not the just one, but their other out there too and know what their going though.
Out With Dad is most important to me because it is crafted with love, and shared with love. Which transcends any theme, issue, race or even sexuality. Of course I am so glad for everyone whom it relates to because of their own experiences, but I am also glad for those who relate to it as a story of love, plain and simple, and proud to be one of those people.
Out with Dad is soooo great. Thx for making this show. I´m from Austria and i work for a organisation where i work with young gays and for many of them is Out with Dad a great help.
Thank you all for your incredible work!!!!
Out With Dad is special four us, because it helped our daughter to be Out with Family.
I love Out With Dad. I’m in England, and some family members have not supported me coming out at all.
Like rose, my dad is very supportive, but lives in another country. My mum now refuses to speak to me. Being from a small family, I don’t have much left. An aunt, a grandmother, and a couple of utterly fantastic friends <3.
Out With Dad makes me feel better. I see how it could be for people, how family's and parents can be present and supportive. It kept me strong before I came out and it gave me hope. It makes me feel like I am not alone.
If I could contribute, so Out With Dad can carry on being there I would. One day I will.
Aww sorry about you and your mum, I’m sure she still loves you.
With LOVE from Scotland <3 🙂
Aww that’s a shame (about you and your mum). I’m sure that she still LOVES you.
With LOVE from Scotland <3 🙂
I love Out with Dad I been waitinh for every season. I’m currently in Australia and I know that anywhere in the world the messages from the videos can connect to anyone who watch it. I can relate to it and I know everyone can relate too. I am not normally from Australia we moved here cause of my dad’s work. I am not white either and english isn’t my first language. I had girlfriends before I came to Australia and I am not sure if my parents had a clue we are a Catholic and I didn’t tell them because I was scared. I came to Australia and when I went to school I got bullied because I am a Lesbian and I am not white and so on. I eat my lunch inside the classroom where my next class is because I just want to be alone. I had a hard time at school I got really depressed and I nearly jump on a rail tracks. I can not tell my parents so I kept it to myself. My last school in my country is very good because they acceptede there but here in Australia 2 years in high school was just not that accepting for me. Now I am settled but still scared to face the world with the help of your videos I am starting to grow and get the confidence I lost. Thank you so much for saving my life. I am sure that I am not the only one. Hope see the next season soon :). Love you all.
I’m a huge supporter of what Out With Dad is doing for young people and the gay community. As a 25 year old gay woman i watch this show and look back on a character that lived inside of me at a very young age and only see the positive, beautiful things that i was so ashamed of back then. Rose is a very relateable character who we all know very personally. If this show can reach even a small group of people and give them the hope i desperately needed at one time, i pray that they get enough support from fans and sponsors to keep us enlightened with more. Keep up the good work Out With Dad cast and crew!
Yeah, I agree with you. There was nothing like OWD when I was a teenager. I’m glad that gay teens can watch a web series like OWD nowadays 🙂
I think Out With Dad important ’cause it helps many girls (and boys too) to discover their sexuality and know what to do and how to move forward, to know they are not alone and that their doubts are normal, and often they feel the support of father of Rose as if they were supported by their own parents which gives more courage to stand up with family and friends. Besides all the series treats the subject with humor and romance rather than sex and scandals. It’s really, really a great web serie.
I think Out With Dad is important for a lot of reasons. It’s a form of outreach for loads of young people trying to figure out their identity but doesn’t give the vibe of a heavy topic. It’s more than simple youtube entertainment, it sends messages of love and acceptance and sheds light on growing up and dealing with being gay.
out with dad is important to me because it covers a lot of different issues regarding sexuality not just one or two and the pressure young adults feel when coming to terms with their own sexuality, it helped me to realise that whilst some people are still ignorant in their own beliefs most of the people around you who love and care for you will respect your life choice and just want what’s best for you and more often than not will be struggling to express than they are fine with it, and for the people who don’t… f**k them… overall it gave me the courage to come out to those closest to me and not care whether they were going to accept me, i am now the happiest i have ever been and i can honestly say its because of the way out with dad made me feel!!
Out with dad is important, ’cause tanks to you I tell my parets who I am and Who I love. Now i feel better and I don’t care if people talk about me or my life, because my parents, who are more important know it. It’s a long path, ’cause my mother doesn’t accept it and my girlfriend, but she loves me and one day she’ll love her….
thank you “out with dad”
I think the webserie Out With Dad is very important because it helps LGBT teens to overcome their fears and be able comfortable with themselves.
