A grandmother’s “simple gesture” of helping her bisexual granddaughter get ready for Capital Pride in Washington D.C. has gone viral.

Lexie, who lives in Virginia, tweeted a photo of her grandmother ironing her bisexual pride flag in preparation for the weekend’s festivities.

“I got up this morning to get ready for #DCPride. My grandma walked into my room, looked at my bi flag, and said, ‘Oh, this needs to be pressed out!’ Such a simple gesture, but it holds so much love and meaning for me,” Lexie captioned the photo which has received more than 200,000 likes.

Lexie went on to explain that the moment was extra special for her because she struggled to come out to her grandmother for years.

“It took me years to come out to her out of fear that she would see me differently, but nothing changed. She said, Okay, that’s fine.’ She taught me to love and accept all people, and she has always been supportive of me,” Lexie tweeted.

She also posted another photo of herself with her grandmother.
