My interaction with Zayn (ft. chooch’s meltdown)
It was well into the concert, and I only had ONE sentiment for him and I was two seats away from the catwalk and I kept holding the sign up and he kept missing it and I was losing all hope.
Finallllly, he saw it

The next day, it hit me. And I burst into tears, because despite the islamophobia, from media and the fandom alike, Zayn is still here. And he is kicking ass. He’s smart, talented, hard working, and though I’m sure it hurts to see what people say about him, he is still here, carrying us, bearing the representation, being brown, being Muslim.
And in this split moment, he knew that someone who understood all this, was right there with him.
