Along with the Sonny and LGBT kids think about him having Amanda there with him while he teaches self defense CAUSE she needs to check out the kids and workers but sonnys laughing and having fun until
Sonny teaching the shelter kids self defense but Amanda’s there and one of the kids blurts out for Sonny to tell the story of why he teaches them self defense (cause he volunteers there a lot and people know him) and Sonny tells the story of how when he worked at Staten Island some of his coworkers found out he had a boyfriend and harassed him at work and tried to physically assault him. Amanda never knew. she never even knew he was queer.
Wowowowowow, that’d be a crazy way for her to find out.
I think that it would definitely give her even more respect than she already possessed for Sonny, though, after hearing all of that.
Because despite what happened to him, Sonny came out on top and even stronger in the end. And he continued to work against injustice for people who weren’t able to do it themselves, and he’s tried so hard to make the lives of these kids easier than his, even in some small way.
