Col. Jordan Palmer on being a gay teenager in Kentucky

When it sunk in that being gay could get you beat or put on the street, I realized that I had to listen to MY voice, MY soul. Today, it saddens me that too many people listen to the noise of the world, instead of themselves. I broke every rule and I'm proud of it because I did it in a positive manner, with no ill will for anyone. ❤️ I never bothered with who hated me as a result, even when that person turned out to be my Dad. 🤷‍♂️ I purged myself of what others thought of me when I was a child. The Creator was with me the entire time. ✝️ It brings tears to my eyes when I see people hung up on what others think of them. 😢
No one can make you "feel" something about yourself unless you give them that power. No one can stop you except you. 😘 No matter what happens, keep going.
