My hero came to gymnastics @michellewkwan & when we were finishing up we learned about the horrific shootings 15 minutes away from where we were. We are safe, and hope for everyone’s safety in Philadelphia. But let me just say — The senate of the United States should NOT be on RECESS!! We need to be voting on the Bi-Partisan Back Groud Checks Act of 2019.
Gymnastics AND Figure Skating all in one morning!? Honey I’m getting all the joy I can RN, also sorry I’m sticking my landings, she’s dripping talent & devastation hauxs. #fulltwistingjvn
I wanted to do something last night to get my mind off everything that happened yesterday. Going to gymnastics gave me a moment of happiness & having friends to basically hang with 24/7 is also helping. Love you @tanfrance & everyone @queereye for your support and extra love yesterday. Ughhhhh... these waves of sadness are giving me emotional sea sickness. Reaching out for help from friends & family with all of you sharing your love is making this as bearable as it can be.
*Sensitivity Warning* At some point last night while I slept my baby Bug fell from an open window and passed away. I’m hurting so bad today I can’t put it into words, for anyone else experiencing grief & loss, I’m with you. I’m sharing this mainly because if you see me around the next few days I won’t be my typical happy self and that’s okay. Not sure how I’m going to make this loss mean something more but in the meantime, please make a donation to an animal shelter near you.

I LANDED A FULL TWISTING LAYOUT OMGGG 🏳️🌈🏳️🌈🤯💕 The gratitude I feel for this opportunity at this point in my life is just like there are no words. I’ve loved gymnastics my whole life, didn’t learn to flip till high school and when I quit cheering in college I kissed that love goodbye. Then a lot of struggles and tough times happened in my twenties and I genuinely never thought I’d get to use my body or my time in this way again... it feels so good connecting with the little kid who wanted to learn to do something they felt was impossible for them... to flip. I have so much joy right now 🏳️🌈🏳️🌈 Now let’s get to canvassing and caucusing within our Democratic Party and fight for equality and to get this racist white supremacist out of the White House and our future. #mondaymotivation ps spot our new tumbling frand @noor
Change is good 👅🏳️🌈

Thriving too hard to party 🏳️🌈
Happy Bday America 🏳️🌈 One of the things that makes me proudest to be American is the ability to openly dissent. To speak negatively of your government in many countries isn’t permitted, I’m grateful here that we are able to call things the way we see them. That being said, trans women of color are being killed by guns, queer lives are being taken by guns, all Americans lives have been effected by gun violence. The house passed a bipartisan gun violence bill to help close the loopholes in the background check system in gun purchases, it won’t get a vote because of @senatemajldr - it is supported by over 90% of Americans & 75% within the NRA. Or the #equalityact which also enjoys overwhelming public support which we desperately need passed to ensure equal rights for people despite sexual orientation or gender expressions at a federal level. What makes America great is our diversity, our ability to speak TRUTH to power, and our ability to VOTE. Use today to connect with people you care about to see what matters to them about what we want to see happen here in the United States. Do we want a senate that won’t even vote on bills passed by the house? Do we want leaders who openly defy the constitution, engage in subvert and overt racism or do we want fairness and equality? Do we want to sanction police brutality or do we want to feel safe around law enforcement? I want an America that is more fair, more united, and allows the opportunities that I’ve been able to have for all. To achieve change we have to talk to each other, let’s celebrate today but keep on speaking your truth to power. 🏳️🌈🇺🇸🇺🇸
