Eric grew up in a small suburban town in a very religious home. From a young age, he was taught that being gay was wrong and something that could be “overcome” by praying and following the bible. However, when Eric reached his twenties he realized that being gay was nothing to be ashamed of, nor something that he could “fix.” Although coming out to his family was difficult, he says that time heals all wounds and that he has never been more supported or loved by his family today. Eric believes that coming out is the best thing that a gay person can do for him or herself because it enables people to be who they are meant to be.
