Five years ago today I made a Youtube video, which within 24hrs made it’s way to the media. My life completely altered. I realized there were people like myself who were not getting the love and support they needed to live their life fully. Since 2012, I have had the privilege to work with thousands of individuals within and outside the LGBTQ community. In conjunction with the #BornPerfect campaign our work has passed legislation in nine US states, more than a dozen cities, including Washington DC, and introduce US federal legislation to prohibit the use of conversion therapy amongst minors. The greatest thing I learned was sharing. Sharing myself openly allowed me to make a difference for others; Allowing those to then share openly and contribute further. If it wasn’t for those individuals who shared with me in the first place, I would’ve never been able to have the relationships I have now or the achievements I created with them. Don’t ever hesitate or hold back. Your voice makes a difference.
