Confronting Negative Stereotypes

“You have to be willing to suffer the consequences of people not understanding and not getting it and being discriminatory, feeding into the negative stereotypes. Just coming to terms with potential consequences and being comfortable with leaving friends behind, or getting a new job, where people do understand you. Life is about change and progression and if you come out and you’re scared that people aren’t going to get it, go someplace or find people that do get it and do support you, do love you, want the best for you, so you can live truly and freely.”
