“There’s nothing like stepping out on stage into a sold out crowd of almost 16,00 people. What inspires me to keep doing this every day is the joy that I get when I sing on stage. It’s absolutely irreplaceable. With 2 years of sobriety, people think that I have it all together, but in fact I’m just beginning.. The hardest part about working on myself is being honest with not only myself, but everyone around me. Things like therapy, and constantly staying in touch with the people that helped me get to the place that I am today. And I’m still facing these obstacles and these problems and getting through it the best way that I can.” - See the real me.

Asexuals can be acephobic 

I see it all the time. 

I see it when aces say aces don’t need visibility.

I see it when aces say gray/demi isn’t valid.

I see it when aces don’t feel like aces need marriage rights. 

You can be something and have internalized phobias against yourself or others who identity like you.  

This isn’t unusual for any community.
