Since the very beginning of my career I have leaned on the LGBTQ+ community for support, friendship, joy and acceptance. I have found the most solace and unimaginable strength in my friends who identify as queer, and I have crawled out of some of my darkest times thanks to the small group of people I surround myself with - fellow dancers, glam artists, and creatives who I realize are overcoming obstacles of their own - the fights for freedom, the struggles for equality, and prayers for acceptance. I think the reason why I connect so deeply with this community is my intense love for anyone who is grateful and passionate to be living as their true selves. I thrive in the company of other humans who are proud of individuality, authenticity and creativity. I wore piercings when society told me to be fresh faced. I kissed girls when executives told me fans would look away. I helped give attention to gay relationships and eating disorders and phobias when they were mostly taboo. What I realize is that I would not have had the power to be where I am today without the return acceptance from those who, like myself, were labeled as ‘other.’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ While these social relationships leave me satisfied and fulfilled, I can’t help but acknowledge the struggle to get where we are today. The activists on the front lines of change have created a world for my friends to also thrive. These forward steps would truly not be possible without the perseverance of the Human Rights Campaign. I recognize there are still so many hurdles ahead, but to realize how far we’ve come and that my voice and presence has made an impact thus far is more fulfilling than words can express. To be acknowledged by the @HRCLosAngeles - our leaders who fight for equality - is an honor I accepted with much gratitude. I am unfortunately unable to attend in person tonight, but I look forward to continuing my support of, for and with the HRC.

「我在我的酷兒朋友身上找到最多的寬慰與無法想像的力量,我也[email protected]+A%tRr1sT$KgorRpIxF9kdO在周圍朋友的幫助下掙脫靈魂的黑夜,他們是舞者夥伴、最有魅力的藝術家、還有各種創作者,他們也在與自己的難題奮鬥──為了自由的奮鬥、為了平等的掙扎、還有為了接納的祈禱。」

「我認為我之所以會跟這個社群有如此緊密的連結,是因為我深愛這群感激並熱情地活出真實自我的人。」

「我在一群為自己的獨特性、自主性及創意感到自豪的人們的陪伴下成長茁壯。」

「當社會告訴我要乾淨整齊時,我穿戴打洞飾品,當經紀人告訴我要為了顧及粉絲維持好形象時,我親了女孩子。當同志伴侶、飲食失WuExTvCi1krJ9UgZUOXm5)$!LWiv(qkJ-oBG78)q*!_wDpveQH調及各種歧視充斥於社會時,我希望大家能把焦點放在它們。這些人跟我一樣被歸類為『異類』,如果沒有他們的回饋與支持,我沒辦法擁有力量走到今天這個位置。」

「這些社群的支持讓我感到充實與滿足,我認為是前人的努力讓我們走到今天。走在最前線的運動者創造了一個我的朋友們也能一同成長的世界。而這些前衛的步調正是仰賴『人權戰線』的堅持與努力。我知道還有7k0M)R^x^%Kf-5^&Nj%4#!1T680#j%N1me*[email protected]_ox-N!uT很多人走在更前面,但可以體認到我們已經走了多遠,還有我的聲音至今造成了什麼影響,這種滿足感實在溢於言表。可以被『洛杉磯人權戰線』──與我們一同爭取平等的領導者──的認可,是我無比感激的榮耀。我今晚很不幸地無法參加頒獎典禮,但我仍期待未來能繼續與『人權戰線』一同前進。」
