d growing up in Iran. How did that influence your ability to fully accept your own sexuality? Um, it's I didn't know I was gay. I in Iran, basically, there is no gay you. You do what you do. And just then you marry a woman and hide your life. So I didn't I realized I was gay, or I didn't realize I can have a good life that I have now. So I'm very grateful until I moved here. And then it took me a couple of years to accept myself and find people around me that they loved me and allowed me to be who I am. So it was definitely a process. Yeah. I mean, it just seems like on the outside looking like if you're outside or you would see someone you have all this money, you're you're you're successful.

You I learned that you can find family, um, through your friends and you growing up. I just thought your mom your dad on Grandmother, they are the ones who have to accept you. And then it was a period that I learned. It's about me accepting myself and then find others that they become like a family. I was very lonely for a long time, um, hiding, not trusting anyone thinking something is wrong with me. And, um, I put a lot of energy and thought towards making a career out of it. But throughout the process, I missed a lot of relationships. So it took me a while to accept myself. And it's funny when I accepted myself after 21 years, Uh, I was 21 years old and I was expecting my mom to love me between 20 minutes and, of course she really and in Middle Eastern culture
