Who in your life has shown you love and support, and how?

I have been blessed with an amazing family who showed me so much love and support through my transition, but my younger brother has been a great source of strength to me in my transition.
It took him a little while to adjust to having a big brother after having a big sister for most of his life, but he has always made it really clear that he loves and supports me.

We talk about LGBT people thriving and living full lives. What does thriving mean to you?

To me, thriving means having the confidence, strength, and opportunities to chase after your dreams. When you have your basic needs covered, and you’re able to live your life without worrying about how you’re going to take care of yourself or your family, you’re able to focus on what you truly want out of life and you start to find ways to make your dreams come true.
