The Fabulous Beekman Boys win the 21st season of The Amazing Race on Sunday night, and they had the nations LGBT community behind them 100%. They even shared a kiss at the end and showed their genuine love and kindness for each other.
Josh and Brent have their blog with updates, Beekman 1802, they receivedÂ thousands ofÂ messages of supportÂ after the big win, and they read each one. One particular message stood out to the guys. It was from a mother with a son named Colin. Here’s her message to Josh and Brent:
â€œIâ€™m sure you guys are way too busy to read this, but I want you to know how inspirational you two are to my 12 year old son. He is gay and is dealing with bullying and harassment in middle school. Itâ€™s so hard to see him going through this, and sometimes the â€œIt Gets Betterâ€ message is lost on a 12 year old who feels that middle school will never endâ€¦We cheered you on every Sunday night and agonized every time you had difficulties. My son was so incredibly thrilled when you two won last night (as was I!). Thank you for helping him see that not only DOES it get better, it gets AMAZING.â€
ItÂ wasÂ a showing of gratitude and encouragement, the Beekman Boys then went to the entire cast of the 21st season and had them create photo messages for Colin, letting him know that it does in fact get better.
