Pride Series - Nick Garver

Pride Series Day 18 we talk to Nick Garver about how Pride is not for everyone. Nick Garver is a trans man from Sarasota, FL who you might remember from episode 29. Nick is a native of Northwest Ohio and relocated to Sarasota in 2015. He began his transition on 12/01/2016 and works in the medical field for a neurology practice. He says he loves air conditioning, baths and beer!

Introduction

 

Pride events are not for everyone and there are many people out there even though they are a part of the LGBTQ Community they don’t participate in pride events. That doesn’t mean they don’t celebrate pride or cherish the awesome things we have been able to accomplished in the last 50+ years. Some people simply might be introverted, struggle with large crowds or possibly aren’t able to access pride events for many reasons. Make sure you reach out to other LGBTQ not just this month, but all year long and remind them they aren’t alone.
