Melvin is 11 and Gay . . . and Tells a Remarkable Story

It's hard for me to imagine a kid coming out to his family around age 10. This video tells the story of a kid in the Neterlands who did just that. 

His parents are supportive and affirming, but things didn't go so well at his school. Melvin was bullied and had to change schools. A girl in his grade who he's good friends with sends him a love letter. Is it safe for Melvin to come out to someone in his new school?
