Wednesday Morning Man: Alec Smith!
I’ve been out for a long time but it is never lost on me what a monumental event coming out is in someone’s life.
It’s huge and it’s never easy. But no one that I know has ever regretted it.
So a huge congratulations to CrossFit athlete Alec Smith who took to Instagram recently to announce to his followers that he is gay.
“I’m gay and I’m at the point in my life now where I’m OK with that. I’ve accepted it and I’m happy with who I am,” the 26 year old said. “It’s been a struggle, it really has. My whole life I’ve known that I was different.”
Smith closed his video by saying, “When you’re finally able to be yourself, your life will change and it will change for the better.”
He has received a flood of support and here is wishing him all good things moving forward.
