Cohen said to CNN, “There’s probably no gay person that you could ever talk to who wasn’t familiar with people using gay slurs. It happened to me all the time, which is why I was closeted until I was 22. I didn’t think my friends would accept me because I heard them speaking in a certain way.”

But so many people aren’t so lucky, and still today there are families who turn their kids away, and kids who don’t feel safe who are near suicidal about not being accepted.”
