Brought to us by Bud Light for #Pride2017, we have the unique opportunity to hear from a diverse set of voices, describing in their own words what LGBT Pride means to them!
These personal videos were created as part of Bud Light’s #Pride2017 initiative, tapping into a vast network of individuals they knew, sharing compelling stories from across the LGBTQ+ community spectrum.
John is a photographer and bartender who moved from Miami to NYC.
“For a long time I was really afraid to be myself”, John recalls in his video. “I lived very much in secrecy. I didn’t come out until I was 26.”
But now, John no longer hesitates. He has no more secrets, or anything he has to hold back. Watch his moving description of what Pride means to him.
Bud Light teamed up with the Tyler Clementi Foundation on this project. A note from the folks at Tyler Clementi – “Finding people who support you is integral to coming out, finding confidence and being each other’s #Upstanders if you, like many, face #bullying, harassment or hostility because of your gender identity or sexuality. Having a close friend (or friends) that you trust as support is a great way to counter the long-term impacts of bullying.”
