When asked by a Twitter user why he changed, he explained that a suicide attempt at age 17, helped him to begin a journey of self love and made him decide to accept who he really is.

“Thanks to the people that never gave up on me and walked the journey with me. However, it was a failed suicide attempt at 17 that started my journey to self-love.”
