I was seven years old when I first realized that I’m attracted to girls. I wasn’t sure then what it meant. I didn’t fully come to terms with it ‘til I was in high school. While growing up, and realizing I was gay, there was never another option other than to accept and love that about myself.
I wanna see people stop marginalizing the LGBT community and I hope to eradicate the stigma that comes with being gay. I want people to stop using “gay” as a derogatory word. It’s not cool to make assumptions about a person’s character solely based on their sexuality.
[When asked what wrong notion irks her the most about LGBT] Gender roles – insisting that one has to be butch and one has to be femme in a gay relationship. Questions like, ‘Who wears the pants?’. Thinking that it’s a waste if someone is good-looking and gay.
It’s important to know how to think for yourself and figure out what works for you, especially for those who have been a subject of hate and prejudice. If you’ve overcome the struggles of being gay, it’s important to speak out for those people out there who need strength and encouragement.
