Since I came out, I’ve been way more confident and open, and this hasn’t opened doors for me. This summer, I’m spending the entire summer at my University talking to all the income Freshmen about Consent, sexual assault, and rape. Those topics are not talked about enough. And I have also started talking to people about the history of Gay Rights, and a lot of younger gays no nothing pre drag race. I have gone on and won a couple other awards and attend many conventions, but I don’t do it for the awards. I do it to show you can me accepted and successful if you feel comfortable enough to come out, and that there is a wide world of opportunity out there for you!
