    Two years ago, Dadd posted an amazing Facebook status as a way to come out to some of her friends.

    Dadd told BuzzFeed that she decided to write the status after she privately told a group of friends on a night out that she was gay. When one of the group told others, Dadd said she wanted to tell people on her own terms.

    'I was on Skype with friends at the time and they were all supporting me."

    Last week, the status came up on Dadd's Timehop, so she shared the amazing status again. Since being posted, her tweet has been retweeted over 60,000 times.
