i come to philly to turn up, to party. i think it’s great because i meet more people like me in philly and i really can’t get that connection in camden because camden is so negative about being gay or bisexual or transgender.
i think without family as support, you’re gonna look for that support somewhere else – either in a negative or positive way, which could result in probably becoming an alcoholic or drug user. and i feel as tho you need that support to move on. who you gonna turn to? like i live in camden, who am i gonna turn to?
