“I figured out “me” long ago – carved out a confident little space But! if you’re still exploring, if your language keeps evolving, if you aren’t sure if you’ll ever *be* sure – just know you’re wonderful & important I’m so proud of you. #pride”
I’m a queer, non-binary person. I figured out “me” long ago – carved out a confident little space
But! if you’re still exploring, if your language keeps evolving, if you aren’t sure if you’ll ever *be* sure – just know you’re wonderful & important
I’m so proud of you. #pride pic.twitter.com/OrqWSwWgm3
