My proud moment is really ongoing moments of inspiration from our community. It's a collective coming together for gay marriage, for human rights, non-bullying, kindness and equality. The community is diverse, and the support flows out to everyone – a group, a community, a family, an individual. Voices are heard, people rise to the occasion, fight the good fight, find strength in downfalls and spread love with victories. These moments of inspiration fill me up! To be part of such an alive, supportive and loving community is inspiring. I am free to be me – love who I love. I am PROUD of who I am and the amazing girl I love. And every time I feel the love and support of my friends, family, Broadway community, mentors and teachers, is the moment I feel proud. And in those moments I am inspired to rise to the occasion, fight the good fight, find strength in downfalls and spread love. We are all in this together, and the only way for it to work is by our continuous support of each other through open hearts and open minds. Mo matter who you are - you are perfect and you are loved. Stand up for that! Love always, always, ALWAYS wins!
