Drag queens, gentlemen, confused boys and seasoned men. . .
I know all about 'self-confidence' and being insecure.
All through out my life people have told me I was ugly, too skinny, too tall, too goofy or too weird to 'fit in'. I saw myself as a monster, something that no one wanted to be around. All of those years of mental torture and psychological bullying fucked me up big time.
I tried so many ways of making myself more socially and sexually attractive.
I joined many social groups such as footall, baseball, basketball, cheerleading, tennis and choir. I didn't realize how many friends, and loved ones loved me for me until I had finally stopped believing what other people usd to tell me.
The moment I stopped believing what other people thought of me, was the moment it was completely clear.
I am not ugly, I am happily gay and I'm very smart.
Thankfully I have moved on from that though. For 9 nines of my life I lived in constant misery because I cared too much about what other people thought of me.
You don't have to!
Because we're gay, bisexual, bicurious, drag queens, transgendered or closetted makes us more vulnerable to hateful people.
I don't want anyone to live their life as I used to live mine.
Honey, no matter what other people call or tell you, you must love yourself and absolutely everything about you.
Question to the audience:
Has anyone else gone through something like this?
