Top 3 Value Bombs:
1. We have to look at what we're doing to these children and how we're trying to cause something that's good and otherwise should be celebrated become something that is bad and almost a burden on the child.
2. LGBTQ+ persons became synonymous with the word closet. The idea was you hide this aspect of your life, you pretend it doesn't exist. We hide it in a place where no one will find it, which is what we do with closets.
3. Inviting in is about empowerment. It's about owning your ship as it were, that this is who you are and you have no apologies, and you’re only going to invite others into your space if you find you them worthy.
