This honestly just sounds like the kind of HS kid who did a ton of stuff purely for the sake of looking good for colleges. We all know the type. I admit I kind of was one. But I applied for these types of scholarships because in addition to having been GSA president I am also queer and trans.
cool story, brah. cause i fought too. only i fought bigots. with my body. and i’m not using the word fight metaphorically. and other homos fight harder. and our leaders should always be our own, because where we are now is where heterosexuals have taken us. and how is that working out? and the only reward i hope for, and fight for, is the possibility that in the future we may not need to fight as hard.
