Pride is About Saying, “Today, I am Here”

For years, Hollywood-based William Huth has made a career by making people look beautiful and helping them realize their self-worth. For this year’s Pride celebrations, he looks back on what Pride means to him, and what gives him hope for the future.

I live in…

Hollywood

I work in…

West Hollywood, at Chroma Studio where I style hair. I try to tap into people’s inner beauty to reveal their true confidence. When clients come to me, I put all the focus on them. It’s about how they want to look, and how they want to feel beautiful.

My work has shaped my feelings about community…

By teaching me to be secure in myself, and to realize that it’s not about me anymore. It’s about giving back and helping others. It’s about being of service.

People think that the beauty industry is all about vanity, but it’s much deeper than that. It’s about representing the best that you can be and making people feel good about themselves. I mean, come on: Looking in a mirror all day every day for 20 years hasn’t been easy for me! But I love my job because it helps other people see themselves more clearly.

The thing I’m most proud of…

Is letting go of my ego and learning to ask for help.

I’m excited about 2017 Pride because…

It’s a march instead focusing on queer rights as human rights. I’m awake and aware of what is at stake with this presidency. Sometimes you just have to shout at the top of your lungs to be heard and stand up and say “Today, I am here.”

I’m working on…

A documentary on trans rights and what it means to be queer in this day and age.

My favorite movie is…

“Moulin Rouge.” The message is so simple:  All we need is love.

What gives me hope…

Living in the moment. Knowing that I can walk out my door every day and face the world and be ok with who William is. Understanding that I’m a part of something so big and amazingly beautiful as this life.

You can catch William on Instagram (@william_huth33) at his website (wghhair.com) or at Chroma Studio in West Hollywood, where he turns out amazing hair looks on the regular.
