 “The most important thing I could have ever done was open up about my story while encouraging others to share theirs. I am queer. I am Black. I am present. I am a true believer that once you begin to do your work, the world will open up for you. I believe that silence is violence and it is only by me speaking truth to power that I can end it. Let's undo oppression together. “ – Dr. Jon Paul Higgins
