Majoring in Women and Gender Studies

Majoring in Women and Gender Studies

This student at PACE University in New York City came out when he turned 14. As he chats with our photojournalist, he describes the feeling as being so freeing. He said he finally had a word to this feeling that he had. 

My mom didn’t want to accept the fact that her son was gay. When I told my dad, it was a huge episode, My dad turned to my brothers and sisters and said ‘your brother is a faggot’ when they walked in the house. I was so young and people kept telling me it was a phase. It took time for my family, but those who were able to progress, progressed.
