He further shared about his first Pride experience, expressing:
“It was an amazing experience and feeling, because it was such a quick turn from being so closeted to so free and being myself.”
“It was fun to be around people who I could actually relate to. I hadn’t had that many experiences with people in the community up to that point, so it was such a nice feeling to be surrounded by people that understood me and had gone through the same experience as me,” Miles stated.
