Video Release – Onir: Proud To Be More

“Life is much more than one’s sexuality. Sexuality does not define your worth. I’m gay and I refuse to be invisible. I am who I am, and I don’t need to be afraid. I don’t need to be ashamed.I do not need to live my life in the shadows”.

A narrative cannot be silenced because it is falls outside the current norm. Onir tells us what makes him proud to be more.

#ProudToBeMore is a campaign by Levi’s exploring the narratives of queer people, but beyond their queer selves. Send us your stories of how you are #ProudToBeMore with an email to
