Can you believe?????? @jvn
Jonathan is my fav from the @queereye gang because I learned so much about my own internalized homophobia from him. I remember watching the first episode when the show aired and feeling so uncomfortable watching Jonathan be so... gay.
But as the show went on I realized that reaction had nothing to do with Jonathan and everything to do me. I’d internalized the belief that it’s not okay to be queer and seen and proud. Better to just keep your head down and not stir the pot so people will still like you.
Jonathan struts around in heals, has a feminine voice, loves ice skating and is emotionally open and honest with the world. He gave me permission to live out loud and not apologize for it. You get to paint the picture of your own life, so don’t apologize for whatever that looks like for you✨
