Not giving up 🍪!
What a fantastic Pride month it has been for me this year especially with it being my first year being fully out of the closest as a Latino Gay man 🏳️🌈! . I was extremely proud to be who I am today and to be in New York City to be part of the the festivities honoring 50 years of fight for LGBTQ rights and equality that started right here at Stonewall!! . Pride is a reminder that we all as human beings deserve to be love and to be loved, to get a chance to be ourselves and deserve a safe space to dance our 🍑 out💙💚💛💜!!! . I am happy to be part of this community and to call all my LGBTQ friends and Acquaintances I have connected and met over the years my chosen family🌈!!!! . Let’s keep this momentum going for the next 50 years and beyond fighting for LGBTQ rights and equality for all ✊🏽!!!!! #gay #pride #lgbt #stonewall
I’m just the happiest gay in the world! Thanks Gabby for this awesome pic at Valley Pride 🏳️🌈! #gay #pride
Oh my gosh! Connor is Hilarious!! . I had the opportunity a few weeks ago to check out this amazing up and coming Comedian named @connormalbeuf perform and I got to say he had me laughing the whole time when he was on stage!!!! We got to meet afterword to hug, chat and snapped this adorable pic of us!!!! . If you haven’t seen or watch any of Connor’s comedian content you should! He will definitely blow you away and perhaps convince you that he will get a late night show one day as perhaps the first gay comedian to reach that milestone!! . Keep the funny gay laughs coming in Connor!!!
Yesterday was a major milestone for me and my family! My younger brother graduated from college with an Associates Degree in Business. It took him some Sacrifice, patience and determination to reach this milestone but he did it!! He did it with Honors!!! I couldn’t be more prouder of him for all his accomplishments and success during his college tenure!!! Congratulations Chris 👨🎓!!!!
Oh you know just having some fun this weekend working @rupaulsdragcon for LAPL!
Happy Mother’s Day to my lovely mom who has been there for me from birth to my adulthood! She has been nothing but support for me in the 30 years I have been around and I have her to thank for proving me the tools and guidance that has gotten me to where I am at today!! Thank you mom for all you do for me and my younger brother and for letting us recognize you on this special day today!!!
What an amazing friend this guy is! @gerardbanales and I have been friends since college 9 years ago at UC Riverside and in those 9 years we have formed the ultimate bond we couldn’t of asked for. Gerald, or Philippe as I called him, has been there for me in my high parts and in my low parts of my life for friendship support. I could’ve not asked for a much better friend who cares & supports me and Vice versa than Philippe! Thank you Philippe for the 9 years of amazing friendship we have had together!! Cheers to 9 more years of continue friendship🥂!!!
It’s crazy how the world works as over the years I have ran into this friend of mine from high school photograph in the most random places at times we have not spoken in such periods of time. Perhaps the universe is trying to tell me something about these amazing people like him that are important to my life that I haven’t realized yet. Regardless, it was a nice jester to see him today in all places in LA.
Happy 30th Birthday to Me! I’m now in my dirty 30s making a wish for something amazing to come forward as my 20s were worth wild. Thank you everyone for wishing me an Happy Birthday!! I really appreciate it and wish nothing but the best that this next decade has in store 🎂!!! #dirty30🎉
It’s always an awesome feeling to return to your alma matter to remind yourself where you spend your four amazing years at rediscovering you, your accomplishments & struggles and to move forward on where I want to be as I’m about to enter into my 30s in a few weeks as this institution has provided me so much in the time I was here. If it wasn’t for this place I don’t think I would be where I’m at today With the amazing life I have had in this Decade that we’re about to accomplish. So thank you UCR for giving me the knowledge and tools to where I am at today as I needed to remind myself of that with some recent events in my life. #gohighlanders
2018, what a year you have been! It has been an up-and-down roller coaster With lots of bumps and turns along the ride. Although I am proud of the progress that I’ve made this year such as Coming to terms of my sexuality after many years of denial and getting to travel To explore our amazing country meeting and hanging out with awesome people on the way, 2018 Has also been a challenging year for me mentally as I have not been in a happy place. There of been some good days and bad days in regards to the But With the support of amazing friends that I have in my life they have help me and guide me to get through it. Now that 2018 is coming to a close, I am ready to take the wheel back in control for 2019 and to get back on track to be more happier and proud than ever as I’ll be tuning 30 on February 7th ready to accomplish what reality throws at me. So with that, let’s all go out there tomorrow and show 2019 who we are made of!!! #newyear

Wow, 2018, what an amazing year it has been! So much has happened to me in these last 12 months in which has left me with excitement for what the next year for me holds. One of the main things that happened for me this year is that I finally worked up the courage to come to terms of my sexuality and to come out of the closet after many years of hiding and denying that I am gay. Look at me now today, I am now out, proud, and happy to accept myself as a Latino gay man 🏳️🌈. None of that would of been possible with the amazing friends, peers, and Acquaintances that I have connected with and formed amazing relationships with over the years across the digital spectrum and in physical presence that care for me and accept me for who I am today. I do not know why it took me so long to come out 🤔? I’m loving this life I’m living in now and I thank you all from all my heart that see me for me and nothing else ❤️ 😊 ❤️!!!! I’m also thrilled that I been able to do so much things this year that I never had the guts or resources to do such being able to travel to and visit various cities and places across America meeting and interacting with awesome humans along the way partaking in activities and events that will cherish forever as well as getting and being actively involved in various causes that resemble my core values of who I am today. Although there have been some challenges and failures along the way that have not been my best moments, those experiences have made me a stronger person giving me the confidence and perseverance to stay positive,not give up, keep my head up and if it’s something you want to keep at it and try again with determination and effort. So with that, 2018 had been an awesome year! Thank ya and for all the amazing humans I interacting with digitally and in person that made it awesome!! I can’t wait to see what 2019 hold as I’m about to turn 30 in February 😱!!! All in all, I’m excited for what that ride hold and can’t wait to see what direction it takes me along the way!!!! #gay #lgbt

Thomas is actually the main reason, motivators and the very first person I came out as gay back on August 30th, 2018 as he said to me then there is nothing ashamed of being gay rather be out and proud for who you without shame and that there is a awesome community and family of gays ready to be there for ya for friendship and support. Thanks to him I made that leap of faith and came out to Thomas. He was happy & excited for me to finally come out as we chatted about my sexuality for months when we formed our friendship connection & assured me that it’s gonna be ok and that life is just gonna get even better for me as out and proud gay man!!! I’m so happy to call this hairy hunk gay my close friend even though we live in different cities but he totally gets me and I get him in which we were able to form that friendship establishment easily as he’s also helpful and supportive to a project I am working on that he encouraged me to work on and pursue. Thomas White is a gentle and amazing gay at ❤️!!!! So thank you for everything in these last few months that we have connected & just caring and being there for me!!!!

I am Gay. This is something that I’ve known for a long time, but instead of talking to someone I could trust years ago, I bottled my feelings up and put it to the back of my mind because I didn’t want to be different and I thought that if I ignored it then it would go away and I could be like everyone else. These past few years been both the worst and best for me. I have gone round in circles from time to time from ‘you’re not gay’ to ‘perhaps you are gay’ to ‘you’re gay and it’s not such a bad thing. At the worst times I would imagine being rejected by my friends and how my family wouldn’t love me anymore. This past Summer I had decided that I couldn’t go on like this. I couldn’t go on worrying about whether each of my friends would accept me and I couldn’t cope with the horrible ‘what if they knew?’ feeling anymore. But most of all I knew that I had to begin accepting myself and I had to find someone who I could talk to. This past August I finally told the first person and then a few others. I chose people who I trust, including those I have formed friendships exclusively online, because I didn’t know how it will go with others in actual life. But it did go well, much better than I had hoped for and I felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. It felt great to finally be able to be completely honest with people. Suddenly it was no longer such a big deal, no one cared and I started to feel happier and more confident about myself. It made me realize how damaging bottling feelings up can be and I wished that I had done this years ago. I am telling you guys this because I think you are the best people I know and I trust and value our friendship so much. Nothing has really changed, I’m still the same person, I’ve just decided to be more honest with you and for that I can tell you I am out and proud for who I am today for which it would of not been possible with amazing people in my life such as yourself and those I have told prior to this posting and received nothing but amazing love and support from you all. Thank You! Love, Jonathan #nationalcomingoutday
