ComingOutQTPoC

Pictures about ComingOutQTPoC

The journey towards my “Happy” wasn’t always reflected in the smile on my face. As a man of color who also happens to be gay, I had to strip away the fiction I bought into that was socialized around me. Grateful that I became the reflection I was hungrily searching for in the world. Sharing my truth so other black and brown folks who are struggling with their own can hopefully find some solace and understanding that they are not alone. #EFNIKS #ComingOutQTPoC insta topsy.one#ComingOutQTPoC for @efniksdotcom and National Coming Out Day. insta topsy.oneOut & Proud. 🌈 || link in bio insta topsy.oneI don’t have the best coming out story and that doesn’t matter. What does matter is that I came out to myself and learned to love me totally, wholly, and fully. I hope and pray everyone else learns to do the same. Peace & Love Insta-Fam.

Thanks, Fam!!! insta topsy.oneIt took me the longest to come to grips with my sexuality as a teenager..... i held on to the "bisexual" title for the longest even though II came out when I was 17. Being a gay man, in the black community was a big no-no. I didn’t have anyone to look for for inspiration. My parents didn’t understand. I felt like I let them down. I hated myself for years. But, I got to a point where I stopped blaming myself for what others thought was wrong. I knew I could only live for myself. As time went on, I discovered more about myself as a gay man, which lead to more rock roads. But, time has strengthened me and my convictions. And the people that I was once scared to lose, saw ME for the first time. Some people abandoned me for not being what they wanted, and other loved me even deeper for finally loving my true self for the first time. Everyday is a battle, and sometimes life throws you in directions you’d never thought you’d go in. But, I wholeheartedly believe that everything happens for a reason. And I’m proud and happy to be a shining beacon for that next little gay black boy struggling to feel content in his own skin. Don’t worry, you will. And if you ever need help, I’ll be here.

#ComingOutQTPoC #NationalComingOutDay #Gay #LGBTQ #Pride insta topsy.oneEven as I celebrate at home, I have friends here and around the world who donToday is national coming out day. And on this day, two years ago, the seed was planted from which @TheScarletRibbonProject was born. It started off with me making and posting a video on YouTube that began with me telling how I came out to my family as gay and ended with me disclosing my status (for the very first time) to the world. It was such a liberating experience. So much so, that I wanted to help others feel that feeling of all the years of fear and stress just disappear... I just didnt know how. It wasn’t until I was inspired by @TheGranVarones storytelling project, and saw the reach and impact they had that I knew that was what I was going to do. All I had to do was come up with a name. Now, I’m not going to sit here and pretend to have read The Scarlet Letter, but I HAVE seen #EasyA and the message I got from that was so empowering! How she branded herself, endured her own form of stigma, and owned people’s judgement but didn’t let it effect her, didn’t lower her self worth, and still managed to become a stronger person through it all! And that’s a message we wanted to stand by. So now we brand ourselves and share our stories because by doing that we take away the power that other’s judgement has on us and Stigma simply becomes ignorance. insta topsy.oneQTPoC / LGBTQ+ PoC, share your coming out stories all day today with @efniksdotcom and the #ComingOutQTPoC hashtag, for National Coming Out Day. insta topsy.oneThis month feels special to me.

We know this is a day when so much of society is focused on family, tradition, #ComingOutQTPoC, and living with history. It is impossible to avoid. It can be joy, it can be pain. It can be so many things.
#ComingOutQTPoC I started out as Bi in 7th grade and My mom didn’t understand and asked if that meant I liked “boys and girls
