YouTube makeup artist, Manny Gutierrez, recently rose to fame after he became the first male model for the makeup brand Maybelline. He is a man, he is gay and he does the make-up. One category of people admires him for destroying the gender stereotypes, but there are also those who think that he is doing wrong and target him and his family. But he is not going to leave it the way it is.
Matt Walsh, a blogger known to have rather conservative attitude to LGBT, tweeted a picture of Gutierrez alongside the caption “Dads, this is why you need to be there to raise your sons.” The make-up artist replied that his dad is working with him and supports him in everything because he is extremely proud of his son. The proud father also joined the discussion writing a text massage to his son asking to tell Walsh the following: “This is Manny Sr. Let me first begin by telling you that I’ve always been there for my son and will ALWAYS be there for him. Not only am I proud of what he has accomplished but I’m more proud of the person he has become. I know the words you speak are from lack of knowing anybody from the LGBT community. If you did, you would soon realise they are some of the most real and kind hearted individuals that walk this planet of ours. Going forward, I would choose your actions and words wisely. Just like you would do anything for your family, I would DO for mine. Good day Sir”
