Thank you, John Patrick, for your courage. I attended BYU and rejoice in the progress it’s made — and pray for continued progress.
I just came across this video because I was looking through my old high school stuff from my scrapbook and thought, “I wonder if John went into acting.” Google it. lol John likely won’t remember me, but I went to junior high and high school with him. Yes, people did spread really horrible rumors about him regarding his sexual orientation. He was made fun of A LOT, mostly behind his back. I’m sorry that John had to endure that. I never realized how sad he was. He seemed so happy all the time. I thought he was having the time of his life. I actually kind of envied him because he seemed like such a extrovert and I was always painfully shy. I guess I didn’t have it nearly as hard in school as he did.
I love your sincerity John. Thanks.
