Meet Christian Rocha
HOW DO YOU IDENTIFY?
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF:
Born in Mexico, I was brought to the United States at 3 months where I was raised on the island of Maui. I finally moved out on my own to LA at the age of 18 to pursue my goals as a photographer.
ANY ADVICE YOU’D LIKE TO SHARE OR FOR YOUR YOUNGER SELF:
People are going to try to figure you out before you do and try to place you into a box. Don't let them! Your sexuality is yours and you don't ever let a soul decide that for you.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PRIDE/QUEER MEMORY?
My favorite memory is finally being able to experience my first LA Pride after living in LA for 6 years and being able to share that with my friends who make me feel so comfortable and safe to be myself.
WHAT DOES THIS COMMUNITY MEAN TO YOU?
It's love and acceptance that comes in every shape, size, and form and it must be protected at all costs.
