Austin & Derek


"In my previous career as a teacher, I encountered some amazing young men. My former students Derek and Austin—both openly gay and bisexual—have inspired me to be true to myself and take pride in who I am as a person. How could I have any excuse not to be myself when these young men have risked it all to be who they were born to be?"
