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!

  2. shame on u i am also a boy muslim but i hate lgbt i hate gay and lesbian ask allah for forgivness rigt now oh my god shame on u you dirty rascal

  3. Wow good for u
    I kind of have the same the problem here like u (Muslims parents,very strict community, not able to be who I am) also I need a roof over my head ,a food on table and money.
    And actually right now i am learning german so i can move there,one day. :3

  4. Assalamualaikum Brother, I too am a Muslim like you. In the Qur’an being gay is punishable by directly sending you to the hellfire unless you ask repentance from Allah. I too have a family in which problems arise, but the most important thing is manage with your parents and grow up because they too managed with you and all your duties such as spending for your education, treating you during your sick times, and much much more. I’m not telling you not to be gay because of cultural beliefs or anything other than it is prohibited in the Qur’an. All Muslim brothers and sisters who agree with me pls leave a like. And last but not least parents are the only ones who can bless you immensely as long as you’re great to them as a son or daughter. That blessing or dua will take you to great places in this life and the hereafter

  5. Their doing it to help you be ashamed of yourself disrespecting Islam gays are stupid and your sisters should never follow your footsteps

  6. Ok now I don’t agree with the parents I think this is bad but this doesn’t deserve to beat Toy Story 4, Detective Pikachu, and Most Importantly Stan Lee’s death.

  7. I will add a turtle every like this comment gets

    🐢

    Starting from one because I liked my own comment 😂
    *IF YOU WANT TO NAME A TURTLE JUST SUBSCRIBE TO ME AND COMMENT DONE FOLLOWED BY WHAT YOU WANT YOUR TURTLE TO BE CALLED AND I WILL PUT HIS NAME NEXT TO HIM IN BRACKETS😀😉*

  8. Dear storybooth,

    I was outed at school today as a bisexual girl and now im pretty sure everyone hates me. Best friends wont talk to me, strangers ask me if the rumors are true, and boys make fun of me in the hallways.. worst of all, now i cant come out in my own time. my parents are going to find out soon and im shaking just thinking about it. but this video reminded me theres still people who will love me regardless. thank you sooo much <3

  9. Thank you I left and prefer my parents having a good name yet within myself I believed I was a horrible kid instead of someone looking for a better life in school and work on my own. Im grateful

  10. If ur parents were Muslims then u should know about the end of the world and I just wanted to tell u that u should watch out man, ur right about how they don’t let ur sisters do stuff they are definitely wrong

    1. do you realize how freaking rude you are? Being gay is nothing to be ashamed of, and if anything you should be ashamed of your disrespectful and homophobic comment.

  11. Okay, I get that people can be attracted to the same sex, and blah blah, but how come all of the sudden everyone is gay!!?

  12. What I don’t understand from religious people is you say being gay goes against nature… then why are so many species of animals gay? Animals are definitely not intelligent enough to choose to be gay, it’s just how they are. And if God created all animals why would he create gay ones if he hates them so much? The Bible teaches to love and treat everyone equal and to not judge but here y’all are doing the exact opposite.

    ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.(Mark. 12:31)

    When God created animals, he declared their creation to be “good” (Gen. 1:25)

  13. I’d like to see the parents point of view on this story. Hearing one side constantly diss the other is pretty messed up. Especially if your so called “prison wardens” gave you a home, fed you, clothed you and sent you to school. This kid seems like an ungrateful little bitch who didn’t like that his parents disagreed with his own personal beliefs. The disrespect towards his parents is absolutely disgusting. There is nothing good about his story.

  14. I feel like a disappointment to my parents and a failure in life. I guess the depression speaking but I smoke weed to feel temporary happiness. Anyways I love my parents even though they make shit difficult for me sometimes.

  15. You live in a free country . One of few on earth that allows you to reach your potential with hard work and dedication. And Being from a poor,broken home I know this. I’ve worked from the age of 10…graduated high school by 16 and college just 3 years later. I am a straight white male now in my forties and now have a bigger astigmatism against me from society as a whole than you did from your parents. So while I feel for your plight I can only say keep doing what you love….strive to be better than the last generation…live up to your potential but never look down on those that may not be as enlightened as yourself. Have conversations with those you disagree with and debate your point of view with out malice. That said I’m a soft conservative that believes in everyones right to there own lifestyle. yet most from the school you went to or people that live near you would call me a “nazi” or a”fascist” because My ideas are just a very little bit different from theirs. How do we come together as a country and fix this?

  16. I am going through the same thing to…my mom is trying to make me a pretty princess but I wanna play with friends and play games!

  17. I am Muslim and it is against the rules to be gay I agree with your parents YOU ARE WRONG but i should not judge you for who you are

  18. My parents have talked about lgbtq people and say they are “Disgusting” and that it is a choice they make. I don’t really know what to believe but I don’t judge people no matter who they are,yes I don’t support lgbtq but I will not hate on them. I was just taught that they were disgusting so I don’t really know what else to think. Im straight so I don’t know the truth on how it is to be lgbtq,before this little rant ends I want to say if I said anything that was offensive please correct me because I don’t know if I accidentally said something wrong.

  19. i am a muslim too and in innslam there is said to be no discrimination in cast colour creed religon and gender but still many muslims think that being a gay is a sin . this is so not right . ppl who are a part of the LGBTQ are also humans . idk y ppl dont understand that .

  20. Story of my life too.but I’m never gonna tell my family until they answer questions about what they would do if my brother was gay,and what would the want me to be.but I’m never gonna be straight and that’s FINAL.

  21. What a disrespectful swine, after all they cared about you this is how you treat them? Not only that but also acting as a rotten role model for your siblings, you really do need to fix yourself.

  22. I cam out to my homophobic, extremely religious mom as lesbian and she quickly denied say a thing “It’s a faze”
    “It’s a sin”
    and she ended up kicking me out of the house…

    I’m back with her now but I have to follow rules and not be able to watch, see, support, draw (Because I draw) or have anything rainbow or gay related. At this point, I don’t care if my mother doesn’t believe and kicks me out for who I am. I KNOW that I’m going to be successful and that I’ll be financially stable, have a wife, and maybe even children.

  23. Ok … i am with you because you are brave. But as long as you are not praying to the devil.
    I am sorry that you suffered by the ones who are supposed yo love and care for you.
    I hope your sisters can find strength in going away and living their own lives…. BUT IT IS YOU WHO MUST JELP THEM SUCCEED THAT. IT IS YOU WJO MUST DETACH FROM THEM. IT IS YOU WHO MUST SJOW YOU ARE YOU AND RISK TO LEAVE THEM FOR GOOD. I did snd i am so happy, i don’t miss them anymore.

  24. My family and I aren’t really big supporters of lgbt stuff but if I were to come out to my parents they would probably work it out with me, not yell at me and kick me out!

  25. These are Muslims rules please leave our religion if u think it isn’t right
    But like we are allowed friends over and have education for boys and girl that’s the only thing I’m agreeing him

  26. These are Muslims rules please leave our religion if u think it isn’t right and we were never allowed bf and gf we have this religion for a reason so we follow it do just leave it if u aren’t
    But like we are allowed friends over and have education for boys and girl that’s the only thing I’m

  27. One day your parents won’t be in this
    world, and all they wanted is the best for their kids. You’ll regret saying these stuff about your parents.

  28. I’m going through exactly this. I’m a LaVeyan Satanist, democrat, pansexual, and trans. My parents are right wing republicans. My mom is a christian, my dad is agnostic and has such a strong relationship with his work that he can’t separate himself from it long enough to have a relationship with anyone but my mom. Unfortunately, my mom used my disabilities to make it so that I can’t get away yet. I am 25, have a bachelors degree in psychology, and going for my master’s in clinical mental health, which they are strongly against, yet are paying for? My mom believes the world owes her things because I came out messed up. She also believes that her relationship with my father is paramount to her relationship with her son which, I don’t think it should be. I suffer from depression, anxiety, and PTSD. And it’s like pulling teeth to make my own medical decisions not only regarding that, but regarding my epilepsy and everything else. So I completely sympathize with where this narrator is coming from.

  29. of course the degenerate sodomite is a moraless atheist….
    god bless those muslim parents.
    i may not agree with their religion. but they’re more Christian than most modern Christians.

  30. I really enjoy that the people at storybooth take the time out of their day to animate these videos for us and make merch for us💚💚💚🦋🦄

  31. Respect your parents even if they don’t agree with your views. Your parents sacrifice so much for you you don’t even know.

  32. You should never hate you’re mom and/or dad because they want the best for you and they gave birth to you. Without them you wouldn’t event exist

  33. “Ok, If you choose to be Gay, go ahead it’s YOUR choice. But I won’t recommend it. It’s just up to YOU to decide for yourself if you rather be gay or not or even lesbian if you’re a girl. It’s not my life, just yours. I already chose to be a person that ISN’T gay, how about YOU? “

  34. Listen man your parents seem like nice people I’m not Muslim but I don’t like gays because I am a Christain you are also an atheist this is just my opinion but you need to stop griping about how bad your life is Work is a thing too I hope everyone in the comments accepts that this is my opinion thanks

  35. In my opinion it’s ok to be gay. Before I started dating this new boy I always questioned myself about being bi or straight. But even if I was my parents wouldn’t accept me for who I am. They just don’t get it. It’s like as if they don’t want me to be myself or be happy. But all I can say is when I’m a mom I’m gonna accept my kids for who they are idc if there bi straight gay or whatever. They are who they are and I don’t like when people try to change me so I ain’t gonna change them. But it’s okay to be gay.

  36. You are so messed up I mean you just talk shit about your parents and their religion and everything omg how did storybooth choose this story no offense storybooth is my fav channel but Um this boy is crazy

  37. To sort out your dad: he worked hard for you. At the weekend he gave you all the money he worked for and you STILL don’t like him? JEEZ!

    To sort your mom: she was quick to judge because they knew when you were doing something wrong and wanted to make sure you had the best life.

    They made you do work around the house. It’s called CHORES. Then you got given the money your father worked for.

    Ps about religion it is rude to disrespect another religion and beliefs. We all have a right to believe and don’t act like Muslims are wrong. Because you don’t know.

  38. Hey, I hope you realize your mistake time passes quick and people go away your lying to your family doesn’t that hurt you rethink
