Family | Our Fifteen Minutes

First of all I admire your relationship and I am looking forward to watching you two grow in the show’s upcoming episodes.

I’d like to say thanks for being on this show. Like many LGBTQIA youth this show has helped me come to terms with my sexuality.
I’m almost 19 years old at the moment, but I didn’t learn what it meant to be gay until I was 16. By that, I mean that I didn’t know that there was any kind of relationship other than heterosexual ones. Looking back, I don’t know how that is even possible, but my family is very protective and conservative so it never really came up. It was never really an option to be gay either (not that I chose it. It just wasn’t acceptable.) When I learned about homosexuality a light bulb went off in my head. From that moment on I’ve known 100% that I am lesbian.

One of the scariest things to me about being lesbian is that I can never (or so I thought) have a family. I love children and I love the concept of family. Like Stamie, I’m greek (italian and armenian too), and family is something that I have always valued growing up. I really appreciate your role in this show in showing me that all the things that I thought were impossible are possible.

Thank you for everything you’ve done. This is just a small thing. I could go on forever. You two are beautiful and intelligent and I can’t wait to start a family of my own some day.
