FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailGary Gershoff/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Pride Month celebrates the overall progress made toward the equality of LGBTQ individuals. Fundamentally though, it’s also about the progress made on an individual level — the celebration of your own personal journey in understanding who you are and defining your greater purpose.Openly gay Olympic athletes Adam Rippon and Gus Kenworthy sat down with “Good Morning America” to talk about what Pride Month means to them, what makes them proud to be who they are and they shared a special message to those who are part of the LGBTQ community or its allies.Pride is “fully embracing who you are as a person,” Rippon told “GMA.”“[It’s] fully embracing all of your interests … your friends, your family. It’s a moment where you can celebrate everything that you are,” he added.Rippon also shared that “coming out” as gay is an experience. It’s something someone likely decides to do without great thought and consideration.“You put everything on the line,” Rippon added.Rippon stressed that he’s far from alone. The people he’s met since he came out as gay are the ones he credits with being “the people that make me really glad that I was able and had the strength to share who I was.”And, then, there’s mom.“My mom inspires me,” Rippon added. “My mom was able to give me the confidence as a young kid and reminded me constantly … no matter who I was, that if I treated people the way I wanted to be treated that I would be successful.”Kenworthy, an Olympic silver medal-winning freestyle skier, told “GMA” he was “never fully accepting of myself.”To him, coming out as gay was a “very personal journey.”“Love yourself and embrace yourself” Kenworthy added.He said he would have “certainly” come out as gay earlier, looking back now.“If I knew how accepted and loved I was going to feel after coming out, I certainly would have come out … I would have saved a lot of years of heartache and anguish,” Kenworthy said.What makes Pride 2018 so special to these two?It’s the acknowledgment that there’s work yet to be done across the LGBTQ communities.“We’ve come so far but we’ve got a long way to go,” Kenworthy explained. “We’re a strong community, but we are so divided. Support one another and come together.”Most importantly, he added that the sense of community encouraged during Pride Month shouldn’t just last for one month, but it should be year-round.To those who are not part of the LGBTQ communities and are not allies, he urged them to “get with the program, babe.”“2018 is the year of authenticity,” Rippon said.It’s not only about being authentic to yourself, but it’s about helping, inspiring and mentoring others around you to be strong enough to be their best and authentic selves.“When we can raise each other up, we actually bring ourselves even higher,” Rippon said. “If you feel like you have the platform and you feel comfortable with yourself … if you feel like you have the strength to help others, do it.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Shannan Greene, commander of Coast Guard Sector Juneau. “The new cutter and its crew will provide greater service and enhanced capabilities for the southeast Alaska area and its maritime communities.”The Coast Guard’s Sentinel-class cutters are built by Bollinger Shipyards under a design based on the Damen Stan Patrol Boat 4708. They have a flank speed of 28 knots, and a stern launch system for a 26-foot cutter boat.The Coast Guard is acquiring 58 FRCs to replace the 110-foot Island-class patrol boats.
