About the Author

My name is Zach. I am originally from St. Louis, Missouri and now live in the New York City metro area. I am a gay male that struggled with my own sexuality for the majority of my life. Because of my own religious convictions and how society perceived homosexuality, I had difficulty accepting myself until I was well into my 20’s. I came out to friends and family when I was 25 years old.

I originally attended college at Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri where I pursued degrees in Criminology and Psychology. I wound up changing my educational path and eventually earned a Bachelors Degree in Communication. I am currently a graduate student at Hofstra University in the Forensic Linguistics program.

I enjoy traveling, particularly taking cruises, watching sports, social advocacy, writing, painting, camping/hiking, and consider myself a novice beer and wine connoisseur.

  1. I like what you wrote. I’ve been agnostic for quite awhile; not politically inspired; but I’m also a proud gay man. Came out of the closet when I was 24 and have not looked back. I admire your courage.

    1. It sounds like you and I may be similar. I came out to most of my friends on my 25th birthday (had a coming out party) and I came out to my family at 25.

      It’s all right that you’re not politically inspired. I’m sure I make up for the both of us… lol. I’ve always annoyed my friends and family with how politically inspired I am. I’m sure you have the same amount of courage as I do, you may just show it in a different way 🙂

      Were you raised Christian?
