Thank you.

I think people get complacent.

So many things are better for LGBTQ people these days that it’s easy to forget that progress is patchy.

Some of us have it good. Some of us are doing just fine.

But others?

There are thousands of queer kids living through experiences like Caleb’s and Matt’s. Right this very minute.

That’s a painful thought and a painful reality that I hope to illustrate for people.
