Clarence Alexander Pryor is a lot of things. He’s an LGBTQ activist. He’s a Power Rangers fan. He’s a certified lifeguard. And, according to his Instagram page, he’s the world’s “next #1 autistic swimmer” who lives by the motto: “Never give up until the end!”

“I’m 32 years old and I have a disability like autism from this condition called Aspergers,” Pryor, who lives in Greensboro, NC, writes in a powerful fanpost published by Outsports. “Over the years, I didn’t know I have a disability like that. I’ve grown to adjust to it.”
