Leon Fernandes chats with Greg, a wise elder with fascinating life-insights. For Leon, the conversation was life-changing.

Greg tells the story of his struggles with being accepted as a gay man when he came out decades ago.

Unlike most experiences today, back then coming out was often a journey marked by profound trauma and societal rejection. The weight of societal stigma and fear of persecution hung heavily over individuals who dared to be true to themselves. Many faced isolation from family and friends, discrimination in workplaces, and even violence. The courage it took to embrace one’s identity in a hostile world cannot be overstated. Yet, despite the adversity, these individuals paved the way for progress, resilience, and the gradual transformation of societal attitudes towards LGBTQ+ rights and acceptance.
