Your favourite LGBTQ+ Youtuber? 

Gigi Gorgeous is a massive inspiration and role model for not only the LGBTQ+ community, but for everyone. Growing up as a young boy, she transitioned on YouTube for the world to see. She basically came out three times, as a gay male, then transgender and now she identifies as a gay female. Coming out can be a very difficult thing to do, especially for someone who doesn't have a strong support system, so to see her journey online was so eye opening, and gave people the hope they needed to be more authentic with the ones they love the most. 

Why is pride still important?

Pride events are the one time of the year where you can go out in public, surrounded by so much love and positivity and promote equality, self affirmation and help increase visibility for the LGBTQ+ community. It also helps end stigma and help pave a more positive way for our lgbtq+ children and youth, who may not come from a supportive background and see a pride event as a beacon of hope. 

What is your advice for people that haven't come out yet? 

Remember that everyone's coming our journey will be different. If you are considering coming out, go for it! Make sure you surround yourself with people who radiate positivity and love. You don't have to tell everyone at once or post it to social. Take it slow, and do what works for you. Remember, there are many  resources out there if you need someone to help guide you or walk with you during this time. Your wishes and feelings are valid, heard and you are important.
