You got us. We love you. Just be who you are.

“THIS wonderful profile from our 2012 Midwest trip!

“I came out at school in eighth grade when I had a crush on this girl and she told everyone, and I was ashamed of it because it was embarrassing. But I had supportive friends that helped me through it. My friends said, “If those other people don’t accept you for who you are, then fuck them, you know. You got us. We love you. Just be who you are.” – Mai, 17, St. Paul, MN.”
