I realised I was gay was I was about 15 years-old and I kept that to myself for 3 years. I’d often cry myself to sleep at night because I felt alone and I didn’t know many other gay people … thankfully though I love my life now thanks to my friends, my family, and through awesome role models and through learning about the world and about queer culture, I’ve come to love my life… If you’re feeling sad or alone I want to let you know that you are beautiful, they is absolutely nothing wrong with you. The things that needs to change is society, not you. Keep being you, keep loving your life and strong because you’re not alone and there’s lots of people who care about you.
