HORU August 12, 2015


"I came out in high school as a trans person and started hormones and everything and I got these to symbolize everything I've been through. I was born in New York and always saw these bridge cables around. But then we moved to South Jersey and it was completely different. It was horrible, so intolerant. It was so homogenous. I got beat up all the time.
I put 'try to smile' on there because it's really hard to smile sometimes. It's helped me through some bad times. For me, it means that everything I'm faced with now, I can overcome. And that I can climb over anything that comes my way."
