Hello, I am Daniel G Garza, I came out in 1988 at the age of 17. Coming from a Latin, Catholic, and Conservative family it was not easy being open about my sexuality and identity. Although it was the hardest thing at the time I am proud of the man I have become. I will be sharing more of my story.

My brother came out to me 8 years ago. I was the first person he told. I love my brother and helped him feel comfortable being his genuine self. Through this experience I have become a fierce advocate of the LGBTQ+ community. Because of my personal experiences, I would be honored to offer my support to those needing guidance, a place to voice frustrations, or validation.
The LGBTQ+ Family Connections Center is a counseling, community, and resource center for LGBTQ+ Youth, Individuals and Seniors living in rural populations. Our mission is to strengthen and empower LGBTQ+ youth, individuals, and seniors to overcome obstacles by providing housing, supportive counseling, employment resources, community education, and advocacy serving the LGBTQ+ population in South Dakota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Wyoming as a destination center, or virtual online assistance hub.

I founded gaynet/gaycom and brought more than 4 million of us together. I also had stores in San Francisco in the bulls-eye of the AIDS epidemic. Employees in my ten stores and I were all front-line workers for 14 years, caring for thousands of men dying before the cocktail was produced. I have been actively involved with the LGBTQ+ community for many years and can help anyone with questions or needs. Please feel free to reach out to me.
I would like to provide appropriate support for those with sexual and gender differences as that intersects with physical, mental and cognitive disabilities.
What prompted you to come out when you did?
