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!

I don't really like this, Storybooth. As I look through the comments I realize people agree with me on this. He basically hates his parents for looking out for him. I'm not a homophobic but just like he believes in certain things, so do his parents. In the future he will regret this because he will realize that his parents were only trying to help him. I get it, you parents don't really accept you. But try to look on their perspective of this. Or you will regret it.

The thing that most ppl in the comments section are upset about is not that fact that he was gay. No they are upset because instead of giving them a chance and trying to fix things he ran away and instantly classified them as horrible people. He should have tried to resolve the issue with his parents not rant about how bad they were on the internet. I know people like this and they never go far in life. They always run away when there’s a problem

I can’t begin to describe how disappointed I was with this. Instead of dealing with his family issues, he ran away. Instead of saying it was his family’s beliefs he said it was a whole religions beliefs. This is just 😞

Mates you're not gonna understand his life from a 3:31 video, it's just a guy saying his parents didn't like he was gay, were strict, and would threaten no support. Better to lie so you don't end up homeless under 18 xP

Just a thought: Maybe he calls himself gay to further emphasize his political beliefs, and just another reason to move away and criticize his parents' thinking. I've heard from a lot of people that you can choose to be gay (though that may not be true), and it WOULD make sense... AGAIN, JUST A THOUGHT! don't wanna *t r i g g e r* anyone.

This guy is annoying. in some of this video, I understand. I accept gay people but am also conservative and he was very hypocritical and jugemental. He did not think about anybody but himself and was just pointing out flaws in his parents. This is a really stupid video. The fact that he had a fake relationship and wanted their money from them instead. UGH don't even with me my dude.

•creates fake relationship with parents in order to stay gay •becomes successful despite parent’s beliefs that gays aren’t successful •visits parents only to keep that fake relationship instead of proving to them that gays can be successful •parents literally learn nothing from you, and you don’t learn anything from your parents Try fixing your problems instead of hiding them away, you had the chance to make your parents open-minded and you threw it away

I can relate to this type of situation but my reaction to it is quite opposite. I opened up to my mom about me being pansexual last yr. She is a very committed Christian so of course, she freaked out. Said that I was only being influenced by this generation's trends and stuff. But then I told her how I rly felt about my sexuality and my gender. Thank gawd that I had my sister there too. She accepts me for who I am and even gave me a cute cardigan with a rainbow patch on it for my birthday. She helped me make our mom understand that me being gay won't make me a bad person. And that I'll always be her daughter no matter what. She became more open minded about it, even went out of her way to read some articles and books about how to parent gay children XD lmao but at least she's trying to understand me. I also opened up to her about my spiritual beliefs. When it comes to the bible, we don't rly see eye to eye. I'm more of a laid back type of Christian. Not rly super religious but I believe in God. She is more by the book and rly strict. She believes that we shouldnt get tattoos and that we shouldnt do this and that and all that shit. And it kind of made me more distant from her because everything that she disagrees with is what I agree with. But thank the lord, she was able to finally open her eyes. She told me "I don't think God put us here to act like robots following some strict ass manual. It all depends on your heart's true intentions bcoz God judges the heart, not what man looks at." So yea, she supports LGBT, she has a lot and I do mean ALOT of gay best friends, she learned how to not be racist (cause she used to say negro alot but out of innocence) and yea, she fully supports me in someday getting a ton of tattoos XD lmao. And I'm happy coz the universe gave me and my sister a mom who would go out of her way just to understand and accept the one's she loves. It actually wasnt easy to get her to see through our perspective. But it all depends on how u react to the situation and what u do to fix it. I mean, u only have one mom and one dad. (Lmao I havent opened up to my dad yet since he works in a different state but meh maybe next time.)
