                    quick props to kane- not only did he do a phenomenal job documenting this process, he knew he was asking sensitive questions. even though eugene is the type of person who would be okay answering, he still asked them in a way that wasn’t forceful but at the same time not super hesitant. well done, kane.

                            Eugene is sincerelly such an inspiration, not just for people of the lgbtq community, but for young people like my self who also face similar challenges about putting up a mask and not be able to be true to oneself and the problems he faced with his family. And the part about asking if he was happy sincerely broke my heart, I ask myself the same question every day, and to know that someone as amazing as eugene has similar problems really makes me feel like less of an outcast. I love u so much eugene, I love what u do and the person u have become. U are amazing, no matter what, I hope u finally become happy one day.

My parents let me be a boy or girl if I wanted to because it makes me happy and I will be forever grateful for it.

Thank you for bringing this feeling of realization. Especially because I'm young and in a society that is very closed. Thank you so so much.

Projects like this one where you can pour your entire being into bringing your vision into fruition. Meaning, unlike happiness, lasts longer and brings about a greater sense of contendedness.
