Seeing NOH8 Make a Difference, by Vicki

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014


Today, a 17-year-old girl saw my NOH8 photo on my cell phone.

She quietly asked me if I'd participated in the campaign and if I'd been to the headquarters in Burbank. When I said that I had, she asked me if she could tell me a secret.

Then she told me: she had been in a committed relationship with a girl for two years.

From there, she told me how challenging things have been with her family. She's brilliant, funny and a great kid to be around; but the fact that she loves a girl has caused drama that she does not deserve.

Just seeing my photo allowed her to confide in me. When we were done talking, I was almost in tears because she felt comfortable talking to me. Keep up the good work!
