Pierre Berastain, a recent participant in GLAAD’s 2012 People of Color Media Institute in New York, was featured on the front page of Dallas Morning News on Saturday. In the feature, he discusses overcoming the challenges of growing up as an undocumented immigrant and his hope that President Obama’s new policy directive will allow other immigrants like himself the chance to work legally without fear of deportation. He also discloses that he “came out two times,” in regards to being both gay and undocumented. “In both processes,” he said “you are asking a broader community to accept you and to love you.”
