growing up and achieving success is difficult enough during these challenging times without the added adversity of being a member of the lqbtq+ community. as many know, figuring out who you are can be scary and confusing, especially at such a pivotal time in ones life. we believe that hearing from other members of the community who have already walked that path may be helpful to those figuring themselves out. if i knew is meant to inspire lgbtq+ youth through interviews from people from all different walks of life to answer questions that ~if they knew~ back when they were younger would have liked to ask someone! we hope to create a safe space for people to explore and ask questions!
