Pride for me is stepping out of my comfort zone to break barriers in the hope that future generations do not have to fight so hard to be welcomed. As a young teen, being a member of the LGBTQ+ family was not very welcomed, especially in the area where I lived. Now, living in 2023, even though there are still struggles I face every day, I am more welcomed. Ten years ago, I could not openly talk at work about being married to a woman, but now I can. We are normal people. We raise my kids together. I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in May, and I am a Training Leader at my site in Kentucky. Pride is being able to be myself without repercussions in the workplace and feeling safe being myself.
