The LGBTQIA Humans of Kansas City: Mike G

“I have enough courage to be proud of who I am and proud to be a G in the LGBTQIA community of Kansas City.”

The LGBTQIA Humans of Kansas City“Learning to love the person you are has been a challenge for me. Being a member of the gay community sometimes leaves me feeling on the outside and definitely not included. The way I look on the outside and how I present myself is left to a lot of scrutiny.  Love may sometimes be the cure but getting it and feeling it is another story. I have been blessed with a loving and supportive family that love me for me. If they can love me then I can love me. Their love is my cure. I’m fortunate enough to know that there are others just like me. Even though I don’t participate as much as I would like I know there is somewhere I can feel included. I wanna give a shout out to the KC Bear Mafia, a group founded on inclusion in the KC area, no matter what you identify with. The events, outings, dinners, and charity events give me the opportunity to be and feel included, a part of something. I have enough courage to be proud of who I am and proud to be a G in the LGBTQIA community of Kansas City.”
