" What I am the most proud of ? Myself " " Proud to be "
" I don't owe you a coming out story , I don't owe you a definition of who I am , I don't owe you a name to my sexuality or my preference, I just want to be treated equal and live my life and exist "
" If you change you can accept that change and you don't have to look back and be like that's not who I was, it was who you are "
" Everything is forever until it's not and it's all part of the journey "
" I was very lucky to step into my sexuality without any type of pushback from my family or my closest friends. I realize now how rare that is. It's very affirming to step into that, to be celebrated for that "
" What pride means to me is a celebration of community, celebration of diversity and me celebrating myself and celebrating love and diversity and respect "
