In our world today we are growing and changing and are finally becoming more accepting of relationships that were not always accepted or celebrated. We are normalizing conversations that haven’t always been recognized as normal. For example instead of saying “GAY MARRIAGE” we are just acknowledging it as as marriage.
BHL is always on the hunt for stories that help move the narrative along. We are always wanting to celebrate stories of men and women who are creating a new culture. Creating a new portrayal of maybe a once non traditional account. Through this journey of finding the people who are trailblazers for this conversation we have found the beautiful couple of Michael and Matt.
These men who were married in 2018 and met in 2014 have been living their lives out loud. They are both hard working professionals and make time to highlight and live in a way that shows a marriage that is anything but normal but not cause they are gay but because they are walking a voyage of living their lives to the fullest and sharing those experiences in an abundant and palpable way.
“I was so impressed with the modest and articulate way they shared their perspective and showed their hearts through their words.” -Mark Kurian
Their relationship started with a lot of challenges. Both living in different places, Michael being in full time dental school and not really knowing what the future held for them, they decided to throw caution to the wind and pursue each other with a no hold barred approach. Their relationship started with the pretense of putting the other person first. This beautiful approach is why their relationship has worked
From their Instagram to their blog and Youtube channel, these men are showing us in a bright and beautiful way how to live a life worth cherishing. Their focus on LGBTQ+ travel and lifestyle helps people who are living that lifestyle to find normal ways to travel, explore and create magical moments in safe and charming ways.
One of the tools that Michael and Matt use to get the message of acceptance, love and adoration for life is their own personal stories. Hearing their coming out stories on YouTube and seeing them authentically and humbly share their stories is why so many have taken note of these men. There are so many stories out there, and each story is worth celebrating but there is something unique and special about how Michael and Matt share theres.
When Mark Kurian interviewed these two on his show he said “I was so impressed with the modest and articulate way they shared their perspective and showed their hearts through their words.”
Michael and Matt have created a world where men and women, can see how to live an authentic life, smiling, creating, traveling and being humble every step of the way. If you want to know the where, how and why of being happy these are the men you should follow.
