"I would much prefer to be a good person than a nice person and to be a good person you sometimes have to be bolshie, you have to be a bit angry. You have to say ‘no’. I don’t think there is anything wrong with being angry."

"Being gay isn’t necessarily something to be proud of in itself - but handling it certainly is. The attributes you have to develop, in yourself and standing up for who you are, standing up for other people. A lot of gay people do have a lot of compassion and empathy for people who are different. That’s the thing I think we should be proud of: You. Just being who you are. When gay people are suppressed at a young age, they can’t get married or they can’t be who they are, that makes them inward-thinking. It makes them think about themselves too much. It takes away your head space. It doesn’t allow you to be as open and compassionate as you want to be. Time shouldn’t be taken up with negativity and that’s why representation is really important."


Today this girl in class looked different because she had straightened her hair and I told her it was so pretty and straight and she goes “unlike me”. So me thinking that she has bad self esteem, I say “don’t say that. You’re pretty.” To which she replies “oh no, im pretty. I’m just not straight.” And I shit you not my stomach still hurts from laughing too hard.
