Lovely message from Darren. So important always--a much-needed message to all our friends and family, to every individual. Let's be there for each other and support each other. Let's celebrate our diversity and our individuality.

Wonderful message from Justin Tranter, and supportive words from Darren. I like what Darren said about being thankful for Justin's voice, on and off the mic.
darrencriss Wonderful evening last night celebrating LGBTQ fam with @glaad and kicking off #spiritday today with my buddy @tranterjustin , who had my fave quote of the night: “Our ideas are mainstream… If you’re wondering what a queer, gender non-conformist is doing singing all the songs on the radio… it’s because this queer, gender non-conformist WROTE all the songs on the radio…” Justin, you’re an inspiration and a force of nature. I’m so thankful for your voice, on and off the mic.

tranterjustin: The support in the room last night was truly stunning. The music, the love. I wish we could bottle it and send it to every lgbtq young person in the world! Not only did we celebrate but we raised over 100k for @glaad and all that they do.!
