“Shahs of Sunset” star Reza Farahan is known for his signature mustache and outrageous rants, but Sunday’s (April 8) episode showed his vulnerable side when dealing with his strained family relationship. But Reza also shows an earnest side in his own version of an “It Gets Better” video.

“When I was a kid, I literally remember being at home one day and thinking to myself that I had to live a lie for the rest of my life, that God made a mistake when he made me,” he says about realizing he was attracted to men.

He tells the story of coming out to his mother and how he chose to live his life honestly as a gay man rather than live a lie or commit suicide, and now he hopes to positively impact someone else’s life.

What do you think of the video?
