Evan Darling has always loved cars, but he entered professional racing in 2007 with a larger goal in mind: he wanted to be a role model for gay teens. When he came out to his parents at age 18, in 1986, they reacted so badly he had to move out. But since then, he’d gone on to build a successful career as a mechanic and landscaper, and he wanted to use his entry into racing as a way to give hope to gay teens and campaign against discrimination. It was a lot harder than he anticipated.
