I have never been afraid to be who I am.
Looking back, I am truly blessed to have been raised by two of this planet's most beautiful human beings. They taught me from a young age that people will grow to love me for me. They accepted me and because of that I have always been able to love myself. I will never take that for granted.
I came out to my parents when I was just 15 years old. At the time, they both cried. They were scared for me, knowing that my life was about to get a lot more difficult. Fast forward 10 years and they, much like most of Americans, are a lot less scared.
Things are changing folks and it's only gonna get gayer from here on out. 🏳️🌈
