Mervin & his experience as a gay man
“I used to try very hard to fit into the straight life. I got bullied a lot for being skinny and girly. I became quiet, socially awkward and had absolutely no self-esteem (still affects me sometimes, even today).
My life changed when a colleague (now bestie) brought me to her gay friend’s birthday party. From there, I began meeting more people just like me and finding out I’m not alone. Slowly, my confidence grew until I realized nothing’s wrong with being gay.
