I will tell you one thing about these people you don’t want to be associated with, Isak. About the people who have put on tights and mascara, and gone out to fight for the right to be themselves. These are people who have chosen to stand their ground, even while being harassed and experiencing hate. Who have been assaulted and killed. And it’s not because they’re so extremely keen on being different, but because they’d rather die than be someone they’re not. That, Isak, takes courage on such a completely different level, than most people are able to understand. And I believe that before you have fought that battle yourself… Before you have the guts to stand up for who you are… You should be really fucking careful about putting yourself above Gay Pride.
“The question is can we change our course in time. Now if this were a movie we could write the end of this script and figure a way out of this mess. But real life doesn’t work like that and we can’t pretend that we know how this is going to end. The only thing we can do is control what we do next. How we live our lives. What we consume. How we get involved. And we can use our vote to tell our leaders that we know the truth about climate change.”
