Are you a gay, bi, or trans man who’s been burned by the Church? Tired of living the life society says you SHOULD live, and denying your OWN life? Constantly worried about what others think of you?

Look, I get it. And you’re not alone! For the first 25 years of my life, I was in the closet and living a life that wasn’t my own. I was even engaged to a woman to be married. 

During the pressure cooker of an engagement, and six months before the wedding, I finally flung out of the closet. And because the save-the-dates were already out, the entire world very quickly found out I was gay. 

Even after coming out, it took me YEARS to learn how to really love myself and live MY life. Now? I couldn’t be happier.

To be honest, my story is sort of the driving force behind what we do here. Everyone has the right to be happy and to love themselves, and I can help you get there.

More about me:

At the age of 25, I looked pretty happy. I had a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership, a full time job as a high school Spanish and Theatre teacher, owned a house in the suburbs of Chicago, and was engaged to a woman I was with for five years. To someone looking in from the outside, I really did look happy, only much of it was a facade. 

At this point, I met someone who made me question my whole belief system, and during that struggle, I realized I was living a double life. I realized I had preconceived ideas that being gay was shameful, but in that moment, I realized what was actually wrong was living an inauthentic life. Within 24 hours of meeting this man, I ended the relationship with my fiancée and came out of the closet. 

Coming out was the first of many life changes that came to me, much like the ripples in a pond from a pebble. The courage from coming out nudged me to pursue my dream of being an actor, and it sat next to me in my car as I drove to Los Angeles to continue that dream. 

Fast forward to today - I've built a life for myself with my dog Cadence, about twenty houseplants, and my own LA chosen family. I am able to pursue my dreams while helping others pursue theirs. Being a Life Coach fulfills and heals me in a way I haven't felt since I was a teacher. Only now, I get to do it from a place of pure joy and authenticity.

I can feel the growth

Overall Rating

I was amazed at how far I've come over the last 8 weeks. When I reached out to you, I was stuck. I didn't know there was a way out. Now I have come out to my friends and am progressing towards the life I want with purpose and the skills to get there. I have goals to become who I want to be and I have the determination to belong instead of trying to fit in. I know I have more work to do, but I'm grateful for you and this community and the roles you have played in helping be out and proud. To top it off, I was driving to work the other day and I consciously thought - I'm pretty f***ing happy with my life right now. Thanks for helping me along this journey, and I can't wait to see what the future holds.

So grateful

Overall Rating

On my way home from Pride I was reflecting on who I was six months ago:  a closet case who felt alone and unhappy. Sunday was my first pride and it was the polar opposite from who I was. I felt so loved, so seen, and so wholly myself. I'm so grateful for the encouragement you've given me to grow and guiding me towards finding the authentic "me." It's been two days since Pride and I still get tears just thinking about how loved I feel and how much more myself I am able to be!
