There are gonna be a lot of people that talk about you seeing you on TV as the milestone for them. There were a lot of kids that saw you being unapologetic, doing your thing on ice, and that might have opened their mind to the idea that maybe they could be out someday. So, you’re part of it! It’s living, breathing history, and you’re a part of it.
— Raymond Braun (State of Pride) on Break the Ice with Adam Rippon


“There is something so powerful about sharing a common goal and investing every inch of your body. It binds you in an almost inexplicable way that no one else could understand.” - Tessa Virtue
