Audri, Age 15, Laurel, Mississippi. 2010
We met Audri on our Southern trip in 2010, and her story really stuck with me. She had dropped out of public school because she was being bullied so frequently, and was now being home schooled. She had just lost her father and despite of all these things, she was the most uplifting and positive person. At the end of the interview, Diana asked if she was going to leave Mississippi. Audri replied, “No, there’s gay flight in Mississippi because everyone thinks it’s so horrible so they leave. And nothing ever changes when all the gay people leave. And conservative people will never be used to a butch lesbian holding another girl’s hand, or two guys holding hands if they don’t see it. There’s lots of work that needs to be done and it really makes me happy to get to do it.”
