Fernan – My Pride Story

“When I came out twenty years ago, I was not ashamed of being gay; I was more ashamed of being Asian. The messages I received from my community back then were either hypersexual, or demanded that I make myself disappear by being as close to white as I can. For years, I did my best to wipe the color off of myself. No more! This Pride season, not only do I intend to continue to be proud of my Asian roots, but to help bring visibility to members of our community who do not feel like they belong, because they are black, brown, etc. I see you, and you are beautiful.” Fernan from San Diego
