“Representation matters, honey.”
Bob the Drag Queen
“We showed them we’ll stand up for who we are and our friends and our fans, and for everybody who’s come before me who’s transgender or gay.”
“Growing up, vulnerability wasn’t something that I saw often. Now, I am open, and I can express myself the way I want to.”
“When I moved to L.A., I finally felt seen. Seeing everyone live their life to the fullest, being themselves 100 percent all the time, it really did make me want to be myself.”
“That was one of the most powerful moments of me feeling accepted for who I truly was.”
“My mom really sees me for me. She said that I was perfect, like I was the best thing in the world—and made me feel seen.”
“I feel seen when Masami knows exactly when to give me a hug.”
& Laura Chautin
“When my mom first saw me, she burst into tears and held me in her arms. I realized that I could be myself. I finally felt seen.”
“I had someone who believed in me and it brought my confidence up so much.”
