"Mi'jito it doesn't matter"

At this time my partner and I were together for 6 years. I finally brought him to meet my grandmother and to tell my grandmother about me being gay. It was incredibly hard, but I did photograph it. She interrupted me and said "Mi'jito it doesn't matter". She loves me regardless and wants me to be happy. I love this moment I shared with her. This photograph shows my grandmother accepting who I am.
