Save The Real O'Neals

It wasn't easy for me to come out to my family and friends growing up and there are still times when I'm ashamed of who I am. I don't think I'm a bad person, but growing up in a strict Catholic home, being gay was frowned upon and left me confused for the majority of my life. I was a lot like Kenny O'Neal in my teens. I just didn't have Kenny's courage, though. 

I made sure to always be available on Tuesday nights at 7:30 p.m to get my dose of relatable comedy. I even missed a couple of important events due to the fact that I always felt proud of who I was as someone who is gay after those 30 minutes of television. The show gave me hope, courage, and most of the time I laughed uncontrollably. 

This show was watched by many like me. And by "like me" I mean those of us who struggled with our sexuality growing up. I can't be the only one who found strength in these characters and storylines!

Don't let ABC cancel such a gem! PLEASE.
