I knew then, I mean it was very clear that someday I would be back to do something about this and change it for others that followed. Sally & Jay

Knowing my authentic self and being proud to share with the world who I truly am, this is the ultimate freedom for me. Michael B.
Absolutely don’t quit, don’t give up, don’t take no for an answer. Belinda
