“People, perhaps particularly LGBTQ people, need to hear more stories of love and acceptance and welcoming. Growing up, I didn’t know this type of reaction and acceptance was possible, especially on a sports team. I didn’t know people like me existed: athletes who were talented at what they did and also happened to be gay. Since coming out and meeting new people - all the while being comfortable now with who I am - one thing I know to be most true is that I am not alone.
And you are not alone. There are people out there in this world who understand what you’re going through, how you feel, what scares you - people out there who fully realize the struggles you deal with internally and externally.”
I am sure that if the devil existed, he would want us to feel very sorry for him.
