“It’s been surreal. This process has made me feel so incredibly grateful for the community and the support systems that I’ve had along the way. The South has the largest LGBTQ population in the country, and Houston is the largest city in the South, and this is the greatest honor that I could receive from the community I love so much. It’s truly phenomenal. I am specifically grateful to the city of Houston and the University of Houston for being so welcoming and supportive, and I can’t wait to celebrate Pride with you all.”
