We never talked about sex or sexuality [in my family or in my culture], which is exactly why I'm a sex educator now. I'm out to all my students. I think it offers young people so much to have visible LGBT adults and teachers in their school. It offers a young person the idea that, "I can make it. I can be an adult. I can be successful. If you did it, I can do it, too." That will do so much for a young person. And that does so much for what that young person can offer our world.
