Arabelle, I am the publisher of Prism & Pen on Medium. We seek to highlight LGBTQ storytelling. If you would ever care to write more about your experiences coming out or living out, we would be delighted to showcase your voice.

Thank you so much for this piece, which is so important for queer youth. Family matters so much and I hope you help some parents understand that.
