About

Chris' mother is an immigrant (European to America) and he was born as a tri-national (Swiss, French, American) in the U.S. In 2017, Chris left his home country and emigrated to France, then relocated to London in 2018 and has been here ever since. Over his lifetime, he has been introduced to many people from all over the world with different cultures, languages, customs, and personal experiences. As a result, he has always been one to be inclusive and welcoming to others, as he knows how difficult it feels to be an outsider. Chris say's, "We all just want to feel welcome, like we belong, and have a safe space/place."

As an adult, once Chris realised and came out as gay, he again learned what it felt like to be an outsider / a minority and has always known that a person shouldn't be judged by their sexual orientation or for being different, for that matter. Differences are attributes that should be valued, cherished, and treated as assets.

We are all human beings and as such, just want to live authentically and to be happy. People are better off when they don't have to hide who they are and/or who they love. Life's too short.

Chris has been a Pride parade participant in his community & other surrounding areas each year. He is a frequent supporter of local gay businesses, restaurants, theatres, events in the community. He and his husband display a rainbow flag from their home all year (especially Pride month), every year to show their community that LGBTQ+ people are here, they exist, and they are proud - it has prompted several others in their neighbourhood to do the same now, as well.

Overall, Chris likes to believe that this has impact on not just him, but also his community, by promoting LGBTQ+ existence, showing that LGBTQ+ people are an important part of the community, that they are helpful, friendly, contribute, and good neighbours, and proud to be here.
