What’s different you ask? The fact that this mother was looking for a groom, not a bride

A few months ago, the internet went gaga over a mother who put up a matrimonial ad about her son. What’s different you ask? The fact that this mother was looking for a groom, not a bride.

Harrish Iyer has been an inspiration. Not just for the LGBT Community, but for the furry, four-legged animals too. Blush, a women’s lifestyle channel decided to have a chat with him and his mother in order to understand how their relationship blossomed over the years, and how it wasn’t just Harrish who came out of the closet.

“I was raped by a man when I was 7-years-old and it continued until I was 18-years-old.”

“When you confess about your sexuality to your parents, even they come out of their closet to support you. My mother came out of her closet, and she came out beautifully”
