Gabriel, in his own words: To be gay/lesbian/bi/transgender in Lima is a challenge. A challenge with your family, with your friends, and with yourself. Here it is very dificult to be free.
My first challenge in my life was tell my mom that I’m gay. The successes was her approval.
(With regards to coming out) The last year I put in scene the play “P.A.T.R.I.A”, in that play we talked about, what does it mean to be a Peruvian? And I talked about to be a gay man in Peru. A few years ago I was talking to friends and mom about my sexual orientation, but never felt free to talk about it in this way with everybody.
The gay comunnity in Lima is like Peru: Diverse and fragmented
My advice (to my younger self): Feel free to be yourself and don’t be afraid.”
