By Buddy | Ready to "wear it out loud?โ€ Merch store open, SHOP NOW: | Subscribe: | Record your story @ or our iPhone app for a chance to get animated. Comment, like, share this story. Buddy never really liked his parents, and they never truly got along. They argued and disagreed and butted heads over almost everything. They didn't see eye-to-eye on politics, to religion, to lifestyle and how to raise good healthy happy kids. Buddy is an atheist, while his parents are very devout Muslims. Buddy is very liberal, while his parents are very conservative. And, Buddy is also unapologetically gay, while his parents, not surprisingly, are extremely homophobic. But, even though on the inside it was really clear that he didn't get along with his parents, he was never very public or vocal about his disagreements with his parents.He still needed a roof over his head, and food to eat, and money in his pocket, and he was afraid that if he shared who he really was and what he really believed too strongly they would kick him out of the house, maybe even disown him. Because of that, he formed what looked like a good relationship with his parents, but it was totally fake and artificial - on the inside, he just didn't get along with them. They saw him as being practically perfect, a good and trustworthy kid, but Buddy saw that his parents were really flawed. His mom liked to hold grudges, was very quick to judge people, and liked to enforce really old fashioned gender roles, like boys should do yard work and take out the trash and that girls only belonged in the kitchen and were destined to become subservient housewives. And his father was so invested and distracted by his work that he never formed and real bonds with his children. He was also upset at the way his four sisters were treated. His parents wouldn't allow his sisters to have any friends over. They weren't allowed to have phones, or do any extra curricular activities, or drive once they reached the age where they could legally get their licenses. And it was even worse with Buddy, especially when he tried to come out to them and tell them he was gay - twice. The first time, his parents begged him to date girls because they saw his coming out as a real threat to them. The second time he tried they just threw out a slew of insults and homophobic falsehoods ranging from the idea that gay people were in fact mentally ill, to the idea that it was a simple choice and he was just making the wrong one. They threatened to disown him and told him he would be a failure in life unless he "fixed himself." This all made him so unhappy and he imagined that he would be under the control of his parents for the rest of his life. So, he felt he had to continue to pretend to be the perfect little straight Muslim boy in the house, dating girls and praying and the rest. He didn't think much of it, had been doing it pretty much his whole life, but when he finally confided in his friends they saw it for what it was, miserable and very, very unhealthy. They asked him to imagine what he would be and how he would feel if he was far enough away from them that they couldn't watch his every move, and judge and control him. That was a turning point for him and, realizing his parents were more like prison guards than anything else, he thought of the farthest place he could go without them having a negative impact on him and still be successful and thrive as a young gay man. After doing a little bit of research he concluded that California would be the best place for him -- a thriving LGBT community, a ton of diversity and acceptance, and on the other side of the country from his toxic family life and parents. So, he applied to a few schools in California and, was accepted to attend UCLA! It was one of the happiest moments of his life. His parents were hesitant about it at first, because of how far away it was, but they were happy to have him go to such a highly acclaimed school - that's mostly what they cared about. Since moving to Los Angeles Buddy has never been happier. He is part of a really diverse community with amazing friends, endless support, and a great education. Even though he returns home on Holidays and has to pretend, just like he used to, he is so happy to be out of that toxic house and on his own. His next wish is for his sisters, that they will recognize the truth about their parents, follow in his footsteps, and escape! - - - What's your story? storybooth wants to hear it!

My best friend is gay I am straight and very very religious. It is hard for me to sympathize with you because you come out blaming your problems on religious Republicans instead of facing up to your challenges. My advice would be focused on the good things and donโ€™t just blame people that think differently than you do for all your hardships. God bless!

For some reason I'm getting so many bad vibes about this, plus isn't this mixing up many things?? I don't like this guy one bit! Plus I would wanna hear the parents and sister's part of the story. All I'm getting from this guy is *Oh man I hate my parents cause they are not agreeing with everything that I want to do oh they must be evil then! Oh man my parents are monsters because they don't believe everything I do is right cause I'm always right*

Wow, most of the comment section is siding with the parents. Freaking crazy people. Until you've had abusive parents like the kid in this story and like i had, you will NEVER understand the damage that does to another human being. The parents reasoning doesn't matter. Wrong is wrong, abuse is abuse, no matter the motive or what the parents might be going through. I pray his sisters can get out of that house and have a good life too, much love to buddy. Hope your life continues to be wonderful, you deserve it!!

Im disappointed in this video very much. 1) in Islam we say paradise is under the feet of mother's. This means that you can go to heaven by being kind to ur mother. Just cuz ur mom treated u like crap doesn't mean u shouldn't respect her, because she gave birth to you and helped u through life to be a better person. 2) making a fake relationship with ur parents is terrible. Just suck it up and tell your parents who u are as a person because if they don't accept u then ignore it because do what makes you happy. 3) in Islam it says that women should be treated with respect. Stupid media thinks that Muslims oppress women. This isn't true people just need to know the differences between culture and religion . 4) trying to run away from ur parents and wanting ur sisters too is awful and I have no words on how to describe this. Your parents have used up every penny to make u happy. 5) in Islam it says that if someone has different beliefs than u respect them like how u would want to be respected. Again with the culture and the religion. No hate on storybooth or anyone I respect everyone. I'm just stating facts and my opinion so no one gets confused.

As a christian, you shouldn't hate your parents just because they do something you don't like. Hate what they DO but DONT hate THEM as a PERSON. If that makes any sense. I mean for LGBTQ I support YOU as a PERSON but I don't support what you DO. Another example would be if someone punched me in the face, yeah of course you're gonna hate what they did.. but still LOVE them as a PERSON!

He should stop having a โ€œfake relationshipโ€ with his parents. His parents probably have a different way of loving him itโ€™s bad to not like your parents especially what they do for you. Some people out there have parents that donโ€™t even want them so heโ€™s a very lucky boy I donโ€™t approve of this story.

Um... i hope i dont want to be mean or offensive or anything like that but pretending to like your parents is kind of bad, because your mom gave you life and your dad choose to have YOU to take care of you because he loves you. Even if your parents tell you to do chores because they need help so they can work hard, they feed you, you take showers, you even have a roof over your head. You should be happy unless there hitting you alot or doing bad stuff to you. also I REALLY don't care if your gay, just saying. All you people who are reading this i hope you can be someone who can be successful in life, good luck!๐Ÿ˜‰ Also im Christian :) And Spanish :)

I really feel like my parents dont want me if I confirm my sexuality as bi. Hayley kiyoko and my friends at school really make me feel so confident and I love it until my parents come along and destroy it.
