There are a few days that come to mind for me right away.
The day that I came out to my best friend, not the day itself but the amount of weight that was lifted and how much that event impacted my growth and development as a person two years ago. It really was the beginning of my growth into a more confident and better person.
When I went to gay pride last year was significant as well, it was my first time experiencing something that made me feel open and comfortable with myself in a lot of ways that previously I hadn’t experienced. I felt completely free, I went with this gay guy that I met earlier in the month and we all got drunk on this apartment rooftop in the city with these people that lived there and we were just watching the parade and drinking beer and it was just a great experience that changed my perspective on myself.
And finally there was this other day. When I was in florida with my camera I was taking pictures of this sunset by myself walking barefoot on the sand and it was honestly one of the most peaceful nights I can remember. I was so happy and satisfied with everything, there was this musician I can remember playing his acoustic guitar on the boardwalk, everyone was just gazing out at the purple sky over the water and I was so fucking content with life and myself. It’s just one of those experiences that I will never forget.
