This dad is offering to stand in as parent for LGBT couples on their wedding day
This will warm your heart.
When it comes to your wedding day, everyone deserves to be able to celebrate this monumental day surrounded by love and people who love you.
However, this is not the case for everyone, sadly, and so many people in the LGBTQIA+ community still have to go through this without the support and acceptance of family.
This is obviously not OK, and one TikTok dad has set out to change this by creating a community of people dedicated to ensuring LGBTQIA+ couples get support and love on the wedding day – and more.
"If you are a same-sex couple that's getting married and you do not have biological parents there to support you, please let me know," said Dan Blevins, who goes by @the_zombie_dan on TikTok.
And the Tennessee-based dad is keen to stress that even if he himself is busy with another wedding, and cannot be there for YOU on your wedding day, he has back-up. Lots and lots of back-up.
"If I'm not able to attend your wedding, I have friends that will," Blevins continues.
"We have a big network, and it just continues to grow of moms and dads that want to be a part of your big day."
The kind-hearted dad invites people to message him if they need help and continue to share the video to help spread the word.
"There are parents who want to be there for you on your big day," Blevins says. "We'll be your biggest fans."
"Sign me up"
Needless to say, people are loving Blevins' initiative, and the comments keep coming in, both from others keen to help be someone's stand-in parents, and from people in the LGBTQIA+ community who love this idea so much.
"I'm only 35, so I'm not old enough to be most y'all's mama, but I can sit in as the auntie or the sister if you would like that kind of support," one person commented.
Another one replied:
"I will absolutely stand-in for someone's mama in south Louisiana…I can cook like a great momma too."
A third one chimed in:
"How do I sign up to be one of the parents? I'm a proud mama already. I'm happy to add a few more 'kids."
