A similar kind of pain was apparent in one kid’s letter to Santa. With Christmas around the corner, kids across the globe are wishing for Santa to bring them their favourite toy, However, a child named Will, who says he’s gay, only wants one gift – to know if God loves and supports queer people like him, reports The Indian Express.

“Dear Santa, do you support the LGBTQ community and if you can speak to God, can you tell him I love him, and if he loves me for being gay,” the letter read.
