Pride Season!!

I think for the last few years we’ve taken Gay Pride for granted since we had a President who accepted us and allowed us protections under the law. Now that we are going backwards as a country with “he who shall not be named” Pride for me this year is about standing up and being counted, and not going quietly back into the closet.

gay handsIn Denver I’ve found a community of friends through sports which has expanded all over the country at various tournaments and events. The gay community coming together every pride is one of those amazing times of years where you see everyone celebrating who they are individually. Myself, I’m a boy next door, jock who loves music, brunch and traveling the world. My coming out story was pretty uneventful, my friends and family accepted me for who I am, and in some cases I’ve become closer with them because of it. But there are so many other LGBTQ people who struggle with being accepted by friends and family, and my hope is that Pride becomes a chance for them to feel accepted by their community.
