Being Brave: is making yourself vulnerable by stepping out of what you have been told is
the “norm” in order to expose your own truth.
You know the closer you get to those terrifying feelings,
the closer your getting to your own truth.
So take your fears look them in the eyes, grab them by the balls,
& go for it! – Lady Lou

This is what I told my students when I gathered them together backstage just before they were about to perform for the first time at the Graduation show on Friday night. I wrote it with them in mind but it also resonates a lot with my own life and to so many of my beautiful artistic, sex positive, queer, transgender and POC friends. You inspire me, to help inspire others.
