Our Story

When Brian Terada came out to his friends just a few weeks before graduating from a Christian University, he thought he would lose all of his relationships.

But then the opposite happened: every single one of his relationships within his Christian community deepened, and the love he was shown was powerful enough to drive out all the fear he had growing up in the closet. For so long, Brian isolated himself from these people who wanted to love him the whole time. If only he could have clearly identified the people who were safe to come out to earlier.

In an effort to help those who are still looking for those safe people to come out to, Brian started Be Free- a product line with the Be Free logo clearly printed. Whenever someone is seen using a Be Free product, they are clearly stating that they are a safe person to come out to - they are offering a promise to love.
