Aug 17 Aug 17 I’ve known I was gay since I was 5 years old, and I never felt that being gay was something that I needed to justify, so I never actually came out. Liz Miller, Photojournalist LGBT Wedding Expo's like Say I Do proves that the LGBT community in DC is taking the steps to surface their true identity and it is making life so much more fresh! I’m from Brazil, so there are a lot of cultural expectations for women. My family is Mormon, and I’ve known I was gay since I was 5 years old. I never felt that being gay was something that I needed to justify, so I never actually came out.There is only one side of ‘gay’ being shown to the world through parting and drinking. We are just as worried about saving for retirement, and buying a house, or paying tuition for our children. People don’t see the commonalities between the LGBT people and the rest of the world.I’m worried about the people coming out in their teens and 20s who are trying to fit the stereotype of a party lifestyle. The LGBT people of the past were not fighting for the right for us to party, they were fighting for the right for us to live.
