Raymond Gutierrez recently opened up on the reason behind his decision to make public his sexual orientation or gender identity.
In a recent Instagram post, the son of Eddie Gutierrez and Annabelle Rama noted how he always questioned if it is too late for him.
After all, everyone has already seen how he lived his life.
But then, the twin brother of Richard Gutierrez realized it’s not a question of when but why.
“To this day members of LGBTQ+ community are discriminated upon in the workplace, being bullied in their communities, or even violently killed simply by being themselves. If my story can create more awareness, start conversations or debates, or encourage others to not live in fear, then I’ve used my platform the best way I could,” he said.
He hopes to inspire others to live their truth.
Ruffa Gutierrez’s brother thinks his old self would be “very proud” of what he did.
“Truly grateful and still feeling a bit overwhelmed with the outpouring of support I’ve been getting the last few days.”
