Recently I took a trip to NYC and of course I can never have just a vacation. I took the opportunity to meet @springrollfever, the comedian, YouTuber, and social media influencer. We were able to sit down and swap coming out stories and discuss our shared interest in moving the Qhmer (queer Khmer) community forward. I would like to take this time to thank her for agreeing to be the second episode in our Coming Out Qhmer series. Please take a moment to watch, share, repost, follow, and subscribe to her YouTube and IG channels. Her story resonates for so many of us in the community and together we will continue to support and provide a safe space for all. Video is up on www.qhmer.org or go to her page @springrollfever to follow & watch. We will also be uploading into our IGTV on @qhmer_org! Together we are redefining Qhmer Pride!
Day twenty-two #pride pick is #HiddenKisses!
Though not without flaws, this French drama is tender and heart-rending. When two high school boys' kiss at a party is caught on camera and posted online, it changes both of their lives before either are ready. But the film not only looks at coming out from their eyes, but also takes care to follow the internal journey of their respective parents' as well peers and others in the community. The film goes to some dark places, but ultimately proves hopeful and uplifting.
Directed by Didier Bivel. 2015. Available to stream on Amazon Prime.

Ask away! I wanna answer questions and I’ll respond as soon as I can! ❤️
“Be normal” okay that’s it where my bat?
You all are valid and beautiful and amazing! I love you all! ❤️
Day 21: my thoughts on Mogai are I think it’s good because it’s an umbrella term for all sexualities and gender identities so it includes all people and their identities so I I think it’s a good thing.
That one time when one of your best friends and his family have you over for dinner and throw you a party to celebrate your big life moment. You guys. 😭
Wes and Amy, I love you and all your little people so much! Thank you for having a place at the table for me. ♥️🏳️🌈 PS - that fruit tray tho! 🌈
STORY TIME: I am here.
In the digital world, a pin drop denotes a precise location.
It says, “I am HERE”, which is also to say, “I am not THERE.” Not where I was, not where I may be, but here. Fully. Completely. Here.
It also communicates immediate presence. In this exact moment. Not yesterday. Not tomorrow. Engaged. Undistracted. Present.
Right here. Right now.
We often spend so much of our lives trying to be anywhere but where we are. When you’re younger, you just want to grow up. When you’re older, you just want to be younger. We even struggle to stay fully present in the moments of our days, with an endless stream of distractions and phone notifications competing for our attention.
It also seems we spend so much of our lives trying to be anyone but who we are. We imitate trends, vacillate to influences and capitulate to pressures. We cave to others’ expectations, acquiesce to their tastes, and defer to their preferences, often at the expense of who we really are and what matters to us.
In all this shifting and striving, always trying to be somewhere and someone else, we sabotage ourselves and ultimately miss out on the beauty of both where and who we actually are.
It is with this understanding and how it reflects my own journey that I decided on my latest tattoo.
It is simply… A pin drop.
And so, about 2 years ago, I did a thing.
I sat across the table from a close friend and somehow gathered up the courage to say something that I had been deathly afraid to ever say to another person. And that is, that I was gay.
Somehow, in that moment, I was able to hush the shame of the past and mute the fear of the future long enough to be fully present, and stutter and stumble my way across an emotional finish line, exhausted and weary from years of running and trying to reconcile the person I was with the person I thought I had to be. My soul was tired.
And in response, my friend didn’t look at me like the monster I had long feared I was. That day, at that table, the darkness began to fade. 👇🏻 continued below in comments 👇🏻
