As a child my parents were building toy for me as a gift. They sneakily (at least to a 5 year old) asked what color I wanted it. When it couldn’t be rainbow colored I decided on pink.
So well before I had any inkling of being transgender pink (and later purple) was my favorite color.
Amongst my peers I always hid that those were my favorite colors instead picking things like blue or red to fit in. I was afraid of being mocked if anyone found out.
Happily, when I got my last phone my wife encouraged me to get the pretty purple case for it. Small steps?
