Josh lost everything when he came out, until he found a place where he could be himself.

When Josh Barber came out, he wasn’t greeted with open arms. After spending years trying to figure out who he is, Josh found the courage to be himself. But when he came out, he lost everything. His life seemed to never take off. Then he walked into a Verizon store to upgrade his phone, and Josh’s life changed forever.

Verizon has been my saving grace. I now have a career path and a vision for where I want to me. I can be who I want to be and am accepted for who I am.
