Writing in a serious way led me towards a place of self-acceptance. It gave me the strength to be openly queer in an environment where stating queerness aloud was a deeply political act. Without question, art is a space where activism flourishes. It showed me that there is no small town taboo so strong it can silence someone who stands up to speak. It is important to remember that the most powerful thing we can do is tell our stories proudly, in public. Spark change.
Forever searching for an everyday way to share a few minutes of intensity.
