Pride: In being our full spectrum self--however that manifests + continues to evolve.
I’ve been contemplating on the process of “coming out” as June is #pridemonth + seeing articles of celebrities coming out to the public identifying as queer, as non-binary, as gay, or transitioning. And then I thought about my personal experience around coming out + what the culture looked like growing up in rural Missouri.
One of my best friends came out as gay when I was a teen in Catholic high school. He was sent to a camp for “recovery” + then kicked out of his family home.
