The highlighted bit from an excerpt of Ashly's Facebook post (written in light of a series of racial/hate abuse in schools/colleges) might be one of the reasons why they are reluctant to go public with their relationship.
I won't pretend to fully comprehend what they have to go through and why people can be so mean towards a different kind of love that they don't understand.
I'm not here to engage about Trump/politics, this is not what this account is for.
I've been asked through PMs and comment section if #ashtel is real and why they are so hush hush in their relationship. Hope this provides some insight.
ps: Keep spreading love 💜
