. After my visit to Greenwich Village I was absolutely sure that I would move to New York. For the first time that summer, I finally said: I AM GAY!
Being open with my sexuality has made me confident enough to talk about this topics in rooms full or hundreds of strangers, and has even led me to join a fraternity, and later in my Freshmen year I won a Greek Life Award of Social Justice, Inclusion, and Diversity!
I’m a 58 years young Gay Black American 2019.
There's a lot of things I could have
done differently, but I'm glad I came out, it's
actually, brought me closer to some of my
family and even friends, yes, I lost some
along the way, but hey that's their lost.
I was so nervous that day. So afraid to confirm what I suspected my family had already known for years. The reaction, the result, the finale was the total opposite of what I (foolishly) thought.
