Good for you, Cameron!

You’re taking some really important steps and explaining them very well.

I wish I could show this to every person who ever tells me that we LGBTQ people are exaggerating when we talk about our struggle to find acceptance and affirmation.

If it were all that easy, a young person like you wouldn’t have had to put so much effort and energy into coming out.

I look forward to the day when it doesn’t matter anymore. In the meantime, and since it still does matter a great deal, congratulations for expressing yourself so eloquently.

And for being you so eloquently.
