“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
