Born in Mississippi and raised in other southern states, Lucas has a solid dream of leaving the South behind to chase his dreams of being able to express himself honestly as a transgender, gay person. Having overcome many obstacles to do with growing up in a low-income household, Lucas still wishes to adapt to any problem he may face to reach his goals. Lucas hopes to spread his success to other low-income LGBTQ+ individuals and bring others towards opportunities that they may not have otherwise. The LGBTQ+ community means the most to Lucas emotionally because it is the one community he feels fully accepted within. Lucas hopes for a brighter future for LGBTQ+ people and low-income families from southern and conservative areas.
