Flynn grew up in a strict Christian home and he started questioning his identity at 6 years old, but didn’t start looking into the community until he was 11. He described the experience as “Scary but relieving.”
The first time he came out was to his mom when he was 13 years old. Only her and his sister are supportive but not the rest of his family, Flynn explained.
“The only way to get to your freedom and goals is to take that first scary step,” he said. “There is hope and light at the end of the tunnel, and if I can make it so can you.”
