What Defines Grammo? x
Not afraid to speak publicly, even when others don’t care to hear what is being said.
I really love what I do. in this case am very loyal to the idea and the people I interact with.
What makes me a good activist is that I refuse to accept how people treat others, because of their sexuality.
Selflessness, putting us before me (and us is everyone).
As an activist i am able to inspire other people like me, to be themselves.
Persistence persistence persistence, and more persistence.
