But the woman didn’t stop there.

She continued: ‘I still have more questions. How can you be a latina woman and be gay?

‘You do know being gay is a sin correct.

‘I will pray for you my friend. I’m sorry that you’ve chosen a path that’s going to send you straight to hell.

‘I think you do beautiful makeup but I just can’t have someone who’s gay being a part of my special day.

‘If you at any chance change your mind about being gay let me know please so I can book you.’

Kristian didn’t respond to the messages and instead shared them to Twitter, writing: ‘Openly sharing who I am with the world is my choice; a choice i will never apologize for.

‘I love what I do and who I am. Today I was taken back a little bit. Homophobia is a real issue still in 2019. Please just be kind to everyone you meet.’
