For the first 28 years of my life, I was in denial of who I really was. I’d been attracted to people of my own gender since I was a little boy, but for years, I did everything in my power to muffle those feelings, to conceal my true identity out of fear that I’d be rejected by my loved ones and by society.

If you’re unfamiliar, Slimer is a green, hairless teenager from space who loves eating garbage and is unabashed in his gayness. He flies around leaking his festive sour discharge wherever he goes, flaunting his queer identity—a kind of openness that, as a young man, I’d never before encountered.
