NY-based Talent Manager
The truth is that it took me (and is still taking me) a long time to embrace this identity. I think part of the reason is that my experience was and has been relatively easy. While I may have been hiding a big part of my life for so long, I never hid who I was. My personality, interests, character traits, etc., have always been the same, which is why, for the most part, there was little to no surprise and zero negative reaction when I finally came out.
