The Florida State men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams were coming back from a meet and we got stuck on a plane for a few hours. Someone pulled out their speaker and started playing music.

Out of boredom and feeling very comfortable around my teammates, I decided we needed to get up and dance. I requested “YMCA” by the Village People. Next thing I knew a bunch of my teammates, plus the flight attendant, joined me in dancing to the song.

In this moment I realized I was completely comfortable around my teammates and I was more than just a diver to them. I felt I was like family and they accepted all of me, including my offbeat parts.

I have known since sixth grade that I was gay. I never felt comfortable enough to talk to anyone about it until I was in college. I was confused as to why I was attracted to men.
