What does your identity mean to you?
I am a mild and quiet person, but passionate about helping people. I am quietly proud to be gay and pleased to find my way in society being a role model for those who wish to live their lives with pride but without fanfare. Cheering on the folks who live their lives in rainbows but sometimes from the crowd rather than on the stage.
