Australian musician Axel Winter was getting ready to perform at Sydney Mardi Gras last weekend, when he noticed a man with a Bible spewing anti-gay rhetoric on the street.

“He was saying hateful things towards gay people themselves. He said at one point ‘today is the day that god hates you most,'” he told Gay Star News.

So he decided to fight back, by drowning out the man’s words with music.

Axel and some other musicians near the Pitt Street Mall set up their things and started playing Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” as the crowd cheered them on.

At one point he even took some liberties with the lyrics singing “some boys take a beautiful boy and they hide her away from the rest of the world.”

The plan worked, and eventually the preacher left.

Winter says he was raised a Christian, but he thinks everyone should be treated with respect.

“Thank you Sydney for taking a stand for equality,” he wrote on Facebook. “Whether you’re homosexual or transgender or even just confused, you’re still my friend.”

YouTube personalities Austin and Aaron Rhodes (aka “The Rhodes Bros“) decided to finally come out of the closet to their family and friends in 2015.

In this heartwarming video they call up their father, and tell him they are gay for the very first time.

There’s a lot of stalling and a lot of tears before they finally build up the courage to do it, but when it’s all said and done, he is very supportive.

“You know I love you both,” he says. “That’ll never change.”

The brothers said afterwards that they had never been so nervous in their life, but now feel a huge weight has been lifted off of their shoulders.

“We hope by our actions today you can finish watching this video feeling encouraged and inspired,” they write to their viewers.

A mother in India recently placed a matrimonial ad in the paper for her adult, gay son. It might seem like it would only be a little embarrassing for 36 year old activist Harish Iyer to have his mom get involved in his love life but it's actually groundbreaking. It is thought to be the first same-sex dating ad placed in an Indian newspaper. In fact many papers refused to publish it.

Iyer told the Times of India that they've gotten a few responses so far but he plans on taking his time to decide on the right man.
