Thank you for reminding us that while we can do an amazing job of presenting ourselves externally as not hurting/suffering, that may be very different internally, President Holmes. We always should be kind to everyone because we never know what they are going through no matter how strong/untroubled they may seem externally....

I remember those times very well, President Holmes! “Queer" was like an instant way to marginalize others/ourselves

thanks for sharing so honestly what it's like to be a professional athlete with a conscience
Bella Q.C. (she/her)
01:27:05
I definitely think that there is a certain responsibility that can come with gaining any platform or following, and it's up to every individual to choose how to use their impact––but people with these platforms are humans just the same as anyone else. We need to stay compassionate with ourselves (and stay compassionate with people who have the platforms!) as we attempt to share important messages that we have the opportunity speak on! Thank you so much for sharing your experiences!
