Jason and Joseph, in their own words: “(Being gay means)That I like men, I guess.
(With regards to challenges) Well sometimes people can be really stupid. But it’s not their fault, there just has to be education and mutual respect. We’re not asking for permission.
(The gay community in Lima is) small, divided, and to some extent, comforting.
(With regards to coming out) Joseph: My family always knew.
Jason: At first it was a shock, but then one day my mom said “if he’s ugly I won’t like him.”
(Advice we’d give our younger selves) Be true to yourself, you’re not alone on the world.”
