Allow me to tell you a story. I remember being in 5th grade and wearing a #GAP t-shirt to school. It was grey with blue letters. Pretty standard. I didn't have the fashion sense then that I have now. A kid pointed to the shirt and said GAP stood for Gay And Proud and since I was wearing it, I must be gay. When you're a kid at a Christian school, there is nothing worse being called gay. I never wore the shirt to school again.
Fast forward 15 years to us in rainbow GAP t-shirts, dancing our way down 5th Avenue, representing #GAPInc and the #LGBT community at #NYCPride and being cheered on by thousands of fellow Gay And Proud new yorkers. Such an incredible day, first pride parade ever, and important reminder that there are thousands upon thousands of people out there just waiting to accept your weird self for who you are.
Thanks for giving me this experience @gapinc and @shannonlynnm you've both been a huge part in my never ending pride journey. SBF/GBF forever. #WearYourPride
