My name is Eric Spence, I am 17 and live in Ottawa ON, Canada. I came out to my parents last year in May, although I have know I was gay since the 6th grade, my mom was okay with it, but dad wasn’t so they mutually decided to kick me out of the house for awhile. Not fun. being homeless and missing two weeks of school right before exams. Nearly getting expelled as well. At that point of my life I just had a huge down for close to 6months and tried to kill myself multiple times. On the other hand, it’s kind of good that I didn’t because I have found the career path I want, just recently I have decided I would like to be a fashion design full-time and part-time LGBTQ Activist for North America and Europe.
This is my story,
Have a good day all :) <3
