I want to come out to my parents before my 21st | 2000s Baby

“I’m always known to be the quiet one.”

Tristan, owner of several Ariana Grande perfumes, has been with his first boyfriend for over a year now. Born in Bataan, Philippines and growing up in Ōtautahi, he felt like he couldn’t be his true self around his family, always known as “the quiet one”.

Before his 21st birthday, he wants to come out to his parents so he can finally share his full life with them, and introduce them to Bo.
