Mel is a gay activist who served as Grand Marshall of Connecticut P.R.I.D.E. 2000. He says, "I'm always filled with melancholy when revisiting these days of dealing with societal and parental expectations, and my reality. My hope is to educate people of the fact that we are all mere drops of water in the ocean of God."
