Pride Firsts With Joey Graceffa
Released on 06/29/2017
First gay crush, I think it was actually Ash Ketchum
from Pokemon, so, yeah.
First time I knew I was gay, I think when I finally
admitted it to myself, I was 19 years old, I think.
The first person I came out to was my friend Kat
and we were out to dinner and she was asking me
about my love life and I had no other time
but then to tell her.
Growing up there weren't many gay influences
so, I have to say Ellen was the first gay person
I looked up to because she was one of the more mainstream
people that were openly gay.
First saw an openly gay couple was when I was like
12 years old, my mom had a friend who was a lesbian
and she had a girlfriend and I was like
wait, oh, two girls together, okay, cool, I like it.
The first time someone came out to me was actually
my best friend in high school.
I first came out to her and then like six months later
she came out to me, so, we're like,
you were gay this whole time too?
Like, what the heck?
The first gay character I remember from TV was
Will and Grace, my mom loved that show, so,
I just remember watching it and I never thought twice
about it, I just knew that they were gay
and I didn't think anything of it.
First time I attended pride I was actually
still in the closet, so, that was an interesting experience.
I think the first time I experimented with my look was when
I had the big moment when I was like
you know what, I'm done with shopping at Aeropostale
and I'm gonna shop at Abercrombie and Fitch now
and I was like, and you know what else I'm gonna do?
I'm gonna do a triple pop collar, not two, three.
So, the first time I kissed a boy was at Vidcon.
First time I felt totally confident,
ooh, that's a tough one.
Being gay and a part of the community,
it can sometimes be difficult to have that pride.
It's definitely taken me a long time to actually
come to terms with who I am, becoming comfortable
and confident with that gave me the pride
that I have now.
It's something that I love about myself
and I think that's where my source of pride comes from.
So, those are my Pride firsts.
Hope you have a happy Pride.
