Pink Dollar Possy: The J Letter – A Coming Out Story

“Sometimes you have to step out of your own comfort zone to break that barrier for the next person…. Not only do I want snowboarding to be more accepting of queer people, but I want queer people to know that they’re welcome, and that there isn’t just one type of being gay. You can do whatever the fuck you want. You can be whoever you want. You can chase whatever dreams or passions you have and you’re not just limited to a certain lifestyle. I guess the reason I want people to know that, is because I didn’t know that.” – Jeff DeForge

An interview while riding in a car with Jeff DeForge, on of the stars of Pink Dollar Possy. Jeff shares her experience coming out in snowboarding in 2015. Jeff has been helping to pioneer queer space in snowboarding and we are really glad she’s back in it.

Watch Jeff’s Pride edit from 2016 at Mt. Hood below.
