WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO BE OUT?:
Coming out shows that it is not a stigma of society to be out. That is perfectly normal for us to exist and be happy!
WHY ARE YOU PROUD?:
I'm proud that I have been able to meet so many new and interesting people.
WHAT WAS THE MOST DIFFICULT PART ABOUT COMING OUT?:
The most difficult part was coming out to my parents. My parents are extremely conservative and it was very hard coming out to them and not hiding myself from them.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO OTHERS WHO COME OUT?:
Be patient and be confident. People need to know that you can take your time to come out and to make this life altering decision.
