Hello world, my name is ABE. I am a 24 year old gay Afro-Carribean man in Massachusetts. As I sit here at my desk on a humid Wednesday afternoon, I’m hesitant to delve so deeply into my story like this – but there’s a constant voice that sits in my head forever reminding me that if I don’t stand up and be brave and try to inspire other people that I’ll never be the person that I want to become.

What do you think?
