We live in Florida and when all the don’t say gay stuff started, I got a call from a friend in New York. She said, “I know there’s not much we can do from here but I wanted you to know that I’m thinking about you.” And I tell you, it meant so much to me. Just to know that me and my family are really seen and cared for.
