Many, from people I have never met.
Often times these messages come from young boys like myself, who don't fit into a mold of what society thinks is masculine. Even as far as we have come with acceptance, our culture still makes it a point try and put everyone in a box, or give them a label. Just because a boy wears high heels or lipgloss doesn't mean he wants to be a woman. So while I am just living as my true self, regardless of what is "normal," I realize I was fortunate to have family and friends who have supported me along the way...and many others, do not have this luxury. When someone takes the time to send me a message, thanking me for simply being myself because it inspires them to do so as well, I can not help but be deeply moved. Of course, this is part of being public in my life, and I take this with great responsibility to be the best role-model I can for those who may need one.
While I think we all have fans in our lives, whether we are public personalities or not, I am beyond touched that mine take the time to let me know how they feel. These messages mean the absolute world to me, and make me proud of strapping on a pair of heels and eyelashes every now and then.
