Okay, I know I look like human trash in this picture because I was emotionally compromised, but this was at VidCon and I NEED TO TELL YOU A THING ABOUT TYLER OAKLEY.
I was like 3rd in line, and when I went up I told him and the photographer that I didn’t want a picture or anything. I wanted to tell Tyler what the Trevor Project meant to me, and that what he does as an advocate is REAL and TANGIBLE and that it SAVES LIVES.
Most of what I said was just for him and I don’t intend to share it here, but I did tell him that the family of 4.5 million people that I found through him was stronger than any pain I could feel.
He started to cry, gave me like 4 hugs, and insisted that I look at the camera because HE wanted a picture, all the while telling me that I was strong and that he loved me unconditionally, (and that I was his queen internal screams).
That’s why I love this idiot.
