Original Texts
What was driving me was [that] I was getting notes from kids who were struggling with their sexual orientation. They were depressed.

Some said [they] had suicidal thoughts.

Some had been banished by their own parents and family.

It weighed on me in terms of what I could do.

Obviously I couldn't talk to each one individually that reached out, but you always know if you have people reaching out to you that there's many more that don't, that are just out there wondering whether they have a future or not, wondering whether life gets better …
From there I really decided. There's been a lot of people that came before me that made it possible for me to sit here today, and I needed to do something to help those people that were in a younger generation.

It probably took a year between getting the words exactly like I wanted and picking the right time for the company, because I didn't want it to be a distraction and so forth. I have not regretted it for one minute. Not at all.

Want to be out? Well, it's that life gets better, that you can have a great life filled with joy.

Gay is not a limitation. It's a characteristic that I hope they view, like I do, that it's God's greatest gift.
That's what I hope: to get that message out there to all the young kids struggling with their identity who aren't certain that they're resilient enough or good enough, or [they] are made to feel inferior in some way, or worse, are ostracized or whatever.

Life doesn't need to be like this. And to people that are wondering how they should treat people that are gay, the simple message is be kind. Treat each other with kindness and dignity and respect.

And if you do that, you don't have to worry about walking on eggshells. We're like everybody else. We just like to be treated with dignity and respect.
