Ethan – My Pride Story

“As a proud openly gay man, this Pride month I am focusing on who I choose to surround myself with. Growing up I heard my fair share of homophobic remarks made by family and friends, some of the same people that I continue to surround myself with today. No more – I want the people in my life to make me feel good and proud of my sexuality, not scared and uncomfortable. This Pride month I plan on highlighting the amazing reasons why I’m proud to be gay all month long to make up for the years that I felt ashamed. For those of you who have supported me and the rest of the LGBTQ+ community, thank you. Your support means more then you will ever know. I never chose to be gay but I wouldn’t choose to be anything else. Happy Pride Month” – Ethan from Miami
