Zion, in his own words:“Being gay is a part of me but its not what defines me. There is so much more to me then my sexual orientation.

Sadly, being a gay minority is pretty much a “double minority.” While growing up with a mother in the military I have lived all around the country. All the different places my mom was stationed in I have experienced racism in different forms , which made me more of a stronger person. When I came out the closet I thought that I would be accepted in the gay community but I have also noticed it there as well. It would be nice if we lived in a nonracial Utopian society but unfortunately we don’t.

The gay community in Boston is nice filled with a variety of gay people. Never a dull moment.

(With regards to coming out) I would say I thought I was little bit different from the rest of boys back in middle school. I came out to my mom while she was serving in the military at the age of 16. Talk about being scared out my mind because my mom was a military police officer. When I told her she responded to me ” honey child I already knew you was gay, I was just waiting for you to tell me”. Talk about a Hallmark moment.
