Khloe Kardashian just helped a gay man come out to his parents.
In an episode of Revenge Body, Khloe sits down with two people wanting to make a positive change in their lives.
She meets Mayank, who has a boyfriend, but isn’t out to his parents or any family in India.
He says: ‘My parents bring up weddings and arranged marriages all the time.’ His mother even shows him a photo of a girl she thinks he should date.
He adds: ‘My parents don’t know that I’m gay because it’s just easier than disappointing them.’
‘Being gay is so taboo’
So he sits down with Khloe to discuss how to change his life for the better. He says: ‘I’ve always had issues with weight since I was little.
‘When I started dating Andrew, I used to eat a lot with him,’ he said.
He tells Khloe: ‘The Indian culture that I know – being gay is so taboo – it’s frowned upon and nobody wants to talk about it.’
