Perry Tamantini Sr.

I’m a 53-year-old male. Married to my husband since July 8th, 1990 (28 years). We have 6 kids and 15 grandkids. I am in recovery. I was born and raised by a very homophobic, alcoholic woman. I was a beautician for many years, then put myself through nursing school, then college to be an AOD counselor. Today I just want to be able to help kids realize their dreams without fear of reprisal and teach them that their dreams can be reached, but first and foremost we need to stop putting labels on ourselves. Labels teach hate.
