@matthewconvard its an anniversary of sorts #gay #fyp #foryou ♬ original sound - Matt Convard
Convard gives a very moving and thoughtful reflection on his coming out from three years ago and the growth he's experienced since then. He talks about how coming out teaches queer people to not care what others think about them, beyond just the topic of sexuality. Some of us may think others' opinions are more important than our own, but coming out is a sort of embracing of what makes all of us unique. He says his past self would be proud of where he is today, another sentiment we should all strive to achieve.

Here Convard tackles one of the heaviest topics in the LGBTQ+ community: the ability to be Christian and gay. Convard discusses how coming out actually helped him to grow closer to God. In a country where so many people are divided on topics like these, it's nice to see someone rationalize and eloquently articulate why you can live your life however you please, even if it means getting hate from one side of your community.

Convard jokes here about one of the truly unique benefits to being gay: never having to worry about an unexpected pregnancy. While LGBTQ+ people still need to worry about safe sex and the repercussions of random hookups, a baby being born because of a mistake you made isn't one of the stressors of gay life.
@matthewconvard "Quick tattoo tour" 🥴 #fyp #foryou #foryoupage #gay #tattoo ♬ original sound - Matt Convard
Convard gives us a quick tattoo tour here. The first tattoo he talks about is a tribute to his group of friends from his childhood that he hopes to always stay close with. The other tattoo is a designation of when he came out as gay to his mother, a significant moment in every LGBTQ+ person's life that we never forget. Thankfully it sounds like Convard received a positive reaction from his mom!

Here Convard jokes about how men often look better in the lighting of their car or vehicle, a joke about how often the LGBTQ+ community takes car selfies and posts them on social media as if they're art-gallery worthy!

Convard decides to bring some positivity to your FYP by discussing the positives of being gay rather than the same redundant negatives. He likes to go into a bar and compliment women on their looks after prefacing the conversation with disclosing his sexuality. This allows the person he's complimenting to know he isn't trying to make any advances on them, and it opens up the pathway to a new friendship!
