“I’m making this video for anyone who needs it, It’s OK. It may not seem like it right now, but you are gonna be fine. I know it’s scary, but don’t be afraid. You are who you are, and you should love that person. I don’t want anyone to have to go through 22 years of their life afraid to accept that.”
