Ricky | Humacao, Puerto Rico

“when my appendix ruptured, i got so sick. my own pastor didn’t even come to check on me. i was on my death bed. this woman right here took care of me for six months. fed. bathe me. tended to me. no one from my church cared to see how i was doing. now that church has gone under. i owe my life to this woman. my mother says thank god i was both gay because i didn’t turn out like the people in my church.”
