I stumbled upon this video while scrolling through my social media, groggy and a bit tired and not really coherent to be honest (I wasn't hung over just lack of sleep!) then found this. I saw it was about coming out and a gay crush and it intrigued me as I have never seen an … Continue reading In a heartbeat.
