Nathan, in his own words: “(Being gay) means to stay true to who I am, and live a normal live like anybody else.
(With regards to successes) When I was in college I got a scholarship to study abroad and it was the best.
It took me sometime to accept myself, after that I came out to my friends and I still have not come out to my family.
The gay community in Portland is very diverse and unique, people are not afraid to be who they are and I really like that.
(Advice to my younger self) You are not doing anything wrong, people who loves you will stand by your side, and if you believe in yourself you gonna be happier.”
