This is Ben Shepherd. He came out as gay in a way only a teen in 2015 could.
Shepherd is now 18, but back in 2015 he was a 15-year-old trying to figure out how to come out to his mom.
"I had been doing theater way too long for it to be a secret anymore," he told BuzzFeed News.
"She already knew, it was kind of an unspoken thing and I didn't want to make a big deal out of it."
