Identity with LGBTQ Community
1. What does Pride mean to you?
Pride is a sense of who you are as a person, your very existence, it goes down to your DNA. It is your acceptance of who you are and doing everything you can to protect that energy.
2. Describe your relationship with the LGBTQ+ community, how close are you to it?
I live, sleep, breath the LGBTQ+ community. I am an advocate for awareness within the black queer community.
3. What’s do you appreciate about being LGBTQ?
The diversity among our community. So many different factions that can come together to make a whole.
4. What’s the number 1 misconception that grinds your ears about the LGBTQ community?
Number one misconception that grinds my gears is that the main society and even some people within our community believe that all gays are the same and walk in the same shoes, we are all different and come from many different cultures and backgrounds which is what makes us all unique.
5. I quite don’t understand this about our community, but I want to know more?
The Ballroom Scene.
6. Describe your coming out process in 3 words or less?
A COMPLETE TRAGEDY.
7. Who was the first out person you met, how did they impact your life?
My current best friend who was in an open lesbian relationship in 9th grade, it taught me to be free and accept myself for who I am.
8. Any advice for those struggling with coming out?
My advice would be to own up to who you are as a person and know that many have walked that same path before you, many will walk that same path after you, and it’s perfectly fine to be yourself. The world is more accepting of our culture and there are way more safe spaces than there were before.
9 I feel most confident about “……….”
I feel most confident about the progress that’s being made within our overall society about the LGBTQ+ community.
10 What would you tell your younger gay self?
I would tell my younger gay self that he did everything exactly the way it was meant to be.
