With the encouragement of my therapist I applied to display some artwork at the Pride Festival Rainbow Art Gallery and I got accepted. On June 8, 2017 Pride Edmonton gives out its Pride awards to honor Edmonton’s best and brightest advocates and supports of the LGBTQ community.
Six months ago I would have never been caught dead attending a pride event. I would have done anything to avoid it and to pretend that I was straight. I would never want people to question my sexual orientation. Now, I feel free. I feel like I have been underwater my entire life and I am just coming up for air. I am so excited to not only be attending this event but to actually be a part of it in a very small way.
