so thrilled to be in NYC with @ATT #TurnUpTheLove getting ready for TrevorLIVE NYC🗽🏳️‍🌈! no better way to prep for tomorrow's festivities than by chatting with @trevorproject’s Kevin Wong (@kwprime) about their 24/7 TrevorText & TrevorChat services, powered by AT&T. this is literally life-saving work, & i couldn’t be more honored to share it with y’all.

here’s me the year i came out. i desperately needed a hug, but i’d never let you know. if i could write a letter to this kid, i'd keep it short & simple: i'd tell him that what makes him feel weird is exactly what he's going to someday celebrate & be celebrated for. i'd tell him that being gay is normal, and that the way he navigates the world shouldn't be toned down for the comfort of others. i'd tell him that he only gets one life, and only one chance to live it up & live it loud. i'd tell him that there are so many ways to be a man, and that authenticity and kindness are integral parts of that. i wish i could go back in time 15 years to hug this dweeb & tell him how good it’s all gonna get.
.
i always hear the quote "be the person your middle school self would have needed" & it really hits home. how we all act is important, especially in a world where 'what it means to be a man' can so easily lean toxic. great men aren't afraid to be true to themselves & be connected to their emotions. great men are patient and kind and look out for those most marginalized. i wanted to get involved with @gillette's #LetterstoBoys campaign because every day, the next generation is watching & listening, and while you can't go back & tell yourself the lessons you really needed, you CAN act every day to teach those lessons to those who need them now. tell me what lessons you’d pass on to the next generation in the comments or write your own letter for #FathersDay!! #TheBestMenCanBe #GillettePartner

it’s been three years since the pulse nightclub shooting. 49 lives were taken, many more were injured, & the city of orlando was changed forever. it was a direct attack against the LGBTQ+ & Latinx community. two years ago, i visited pulse on the one year mark of the horrible tragedy to meet with those grieving, to learn from the survivors, & to hear the stories of those taken from our community. today, i hope we continue to #HonorThemWithAction.

MAJOR PINCH ME MOMENT: i’m officially an @abercrombie model!! watch my new video (LINK IN BIO) to hear about this bonkers new chapter in my life, & why their #FaceYourFierce campaign with @trevorproject is so incredible. middle school/high school/college/current me would NOT believe it. 🧡 (shot by @devyngalindo)

last pride, i traveled to cheney, kansas to meet with this inspiring group of students trying to start their own GSA (Gender & Sexuality Alliance) at their school. their dedication to furthering acceptance in their community was inspiring & their passion allowed others in their school/community to learn about their experiences. activism can start at any age, and it takes initial (sometimes uncomfortable) conversations to make real change in communities - which is why i’m pumped that @ceo_action would ask me to share the #IActOn pledge - where people can commit to having more conversations about unconscious bias and why diversity & inclusion are so important - something everyone can work on to be more conscious of! take the pledge with me - link in bio!! my goal for our community is 50k pledges - so if you’re reading this, please consider taking a moment, joining in, & sharing with YOUR community!!

you know who is fierce?? queer people who are still figuring it out, & maybe even still closeted. because it’s fierce to practice self care & to live life on your own terms. it’s fierce to wait until it’s right for you, & fierce to protect yourself when you’re not sure your world will support you yet. if this sounds like what you’re going through - don’t be ashamed. you ARE fierce. your fierce can be our lil secret, until you’re ready to let the world know. 🌟

honored to be a part of @Abercrombie’s new #FaceYourFierce pride campaign, a partnership that has raised more than $600,000 for @TrevorProject’s life-saving crisis services since 2010. and honestly?? can i get cheesy for like half a second?? it’s pretty mind-blowing to be an abercrombie model. middle school me would NOT believe it. 🧡
