Doug Mattis, that’s a very inspiring story. Role models are of course incredibly important. Somtimes we older LGBT people forget just how important it is for us to be examples for youth.
I wonder if you’d consider expanding that response above and allowing me to feature it in Th-ink Queerly, the Medium publication I edit for.
Darren Stehle is the publisher, and I’m certain that both of us would be more than pleased to feature a story like yours.
We have a prerry significant queer youth audience, and I’d love for your story to reach them.
