Deal With It by tohdaryl Deal With It by tohdaryl
Day 30 Challenge (finale): Something youd like to share with your followers or friends.

I'm tired of hiding behind masks. I'm tired of being in fear all the time.

Nobody should be discriminated or judged because of their sexuality. Nobody should be judged at all in the first place. If one should be judged, it would be the deeds of their actions, the work and support they contribute to society and the legacy they leave behind for future generations that could benefit from it.

So judge me as an artist, on my talent, on my profession, and the work I do. Not because of my sexuality.

Thank you, to all my friends, followers, fans, people who love my work and what I do. You are my reason to continue what Im doing till now. Love you all and please love one another.

I see many have already said what I wish to tell you, but I guess a good thing can never be said too many times, right?
I just want to say that I'm happy for you and proud of you for setting an example for all of those out there who aren't as brave as you are. Hiding behind a mask can be very tiring, as well as difficult and could even distance you from the rest of the world. I hope that you will feel much better after this, and that you know that you have a whole bunch of people out there cheering for you and wishing you the best, both in your life and as an artist. Go you! :glomp:

Very touching (for more ways than one - I'm gay, too), and the guy's face is beyond perfect for the message.

Now, I need to hug you to death. :iconletmehugyouplz:
