I would tell my 15-year-old self that it will always be hard. When you graduate you leave a homophobic high school and enter a homophobic world. But in that hate there is a choice, either be yourself or hide. And if you DARE to be yourself know that it will be tough. But in that difficulty, there will be opportunity … an opportunity to change the world by being yourself.
