Spirit Day: The Tragedy by Kendra-Paige Spirit Day: The Tragedy by Kendra-Paige
I have a friend who is terrified of coming out about their sexuality, born from the fear that their family would disown them. I could never fathom the torture they endure on a daily basis pretending to be something - someone that they aren't. Day in and day out.

Flowers are symbolic in a way, coming out and blossoming into something truly beautiful.

The tragedy is that because of the social taboo that surrounds one's sexuality, my friend may never know what it is to blossom into the person they're truly meant to be.

For all of those unable to bloom, know that there will always be someone who supports you.

The photograph is very intense, and the description is just so deep! I think this purple hue can give people this feeling, that you are in time endless taboo.

Oh well, societies were always filled with fuckheads.

I've known people like your fella, and they all came out successfully sooner or later. I'm sure that buddy of yours will come around to not giving two shits eventually.
