Time for a more personal post for Pride!
This is my first pride where Im comfortable with myself, the last few Ive been unsure/questioning. But this time around, i’ve learned a lot about myself.
My name is Lexi and I’m a transmasc enby, my pronouns are they/them or he/him aaand I’m super gay!!
But despite this being my first pride where im comfortable in my identity, I can’t express it or show it off. I live in the Southern US in a small town with small minded people, a handful of my family knows, sorta.. I think theyre in denial or ignore it. But I’m still very proud of myself, cause it took a lot for me to accept this about myself. So i know even though i cant go to the fun parades or events, I’m a part of this community and am proud to be. I do hope next year I can find my way to a place where I can safely go to these events!
So remember even if you can’t go to a Pride event, you’re still apart of this all! You’re apart of something big and strong. And I hope you all one day are able to express it safely with me.
Happy Pride everyone! Stay safe, and stay strong!
