Being gay is not something that defines me. What defines me is what my mom always taught me: to treat everyone with respect, to always be a hard worker, and to be kind
Haters are fans in denial
I can't tone it down. I'm being me and being myself
I can see my competitors sweating, and I am cool as a cucumber
When you're not hiding anything, it's just very easy to be yourself - shockingly.
