Be Your Own Tribe

Wentworth Miller, the openly gay star of Prison Break, told LGBTQ youth on National Coming Out Day that “We all ‘come out.’ In our own way. Usually more than once. Ideally in our own time. If you’re on that road… blessings. And much love.”

He also shared words of encouragement with for LGBTQ youth who feel alone with Attitude magazine. “I would say what others have said: It gets better. One day, you’ll find your tribe. You just have to trust that people are out there waiting to love you and celebrate you for who you are. In the meantime, the reality is you might have to be your own tribe. You might have to be your own best friend. That’s not something they’re going to teach you in school. So start the work of loving yourself.”
