S2018 E16: Mr. United States

Today, Avery D. Wilson appears to be a confident pillar of his community, but in this uplifting story, he reveals otherwise. He was bullied as a child, and later questioned how being gay would affect his faith. As an adult, he feared how his parents would react to his secret. It wasn't until years later that Avery learned to accept himself – to love himself – and become Mr. United States.
