I woke up that morning to a thousand texts and calls from my friends and family. I had no idea what was going on but quickly realized something happened in Orlando. I called my father and he insta you began to cry. While we have had a rocky relationship, he directly told me how proud he is of me as a queer man and all that I have overcome.
