On being young

"I'm just enjoying my youth. A lot of people think that 'cause I'm 18, that I won't be able to hold a conversation, or that I must not be on their level. Is it really all about being on somebody's level? I'd rather get to know them than be on their level."

On coming out

"I came out. People found it shocking. Most of them didn't believe me. Some of them did. Some of them rejected me. Some of them accepted me. I just roll with it."

On the youth of Boystown

"Everybody out here, they smoke, drink, have sex, sometimes debate about religion."
