This is the question they ask me the most. They want to know if I feel like a spokesperson for something. As a 20-year-old girl, happy, loved, free, I’ve always stood there, with my tail between my legs, looking for an answer. Can I really be the spokesperson for something, leave an important imprint? Today I try and I want to talk to you about the harsh reality behind the LGBTQ+ community, outside the bubble of social media and awareness“.
