In these roles that I’ve been fortunate enough to be a part of, I really learned a lot about things that I wouldn’t have any idea really about, except from what I’ve read, but I get to live it in such a deep profound way.  I get to see what it’s like for a transgender person, or a person with a sexual identity crisis, or a lesbian or a gay person, and really the daily harassment that you can get. I got to live that.  I knew that I could go back to being the person that people could define, and that I could step out of that. But for the people that can’t, and that’s their life, it’s a scary place to be, to feel not understood, and when people can’t define you, how it scares them and how their own weakness comes out because they don’t know how to be.
