GLBTI Rights

As an openly gay man who’s suffered ridicule his whole life, John strives to make people comfortable with their sexuality by brining issues to the forefront of conversation.
“Last year I released a book revealing my life story. I opened up about the crippling fear that I faced when dealing with my sexuality in the workforce. For so many years I stayed in the closet for fear of not getting that seat at the boardroom table. 
Work was like a minefield, avoiding personal conversations at all costs for fear of getting caught. I took this so far that I even made my partner have his own bedroom in case colleagues visited. I told this story because I didn’t feel anyone else has, until now that is.” 
John is also in touch with The Trevor Project in the US, a charity that aims to prevent suicide in youths that are Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex or questioning.
