Teo, in his own words: “To be gay is such a small part of my daily affairs. It just mean that I had to understand earlier than most people about how and who I love. I had to come up with my own answers about the world since no one around me in my family had anything to help me (and I resent that)
(The community in São Paulo) depends on who you are and where do you go. If you are skinny and gorgeous you are welcomed anywhere. If you are chubby and less atractive people will set barriers. It’s like a giant highschool like most big cities. But you can always find great people to hang out with, and that’s what is makes all worth it.
(With regards to coming out) I gave a speech to my mother, she forced me to talk about it and I told her I was a scared and alone kid with doubts that had grown into a full nice person and she had no right to deal with this with less awesomeness.
(If I could give advice to myself before coming out, I’d say) dont reject help. people do love you, stop waiting the worse always.”
