Novice Sister Leia Organza
Leia Organza grew up as the awkward nerd type. I was born into a devout Christian family for which my only escape from was my love for Star Wars and a few close childhood friends. Growing into a man wasn't easy, family always urged me to make plans to marry a woman and continue growing the family. It was a very long time before I could truly express who I was on the inside. A young gay man raised in a system that taught having those kind of feelings towards another man was evil and would sentence you to damnation. It was my own kind of hell loathing who I was on the inside but also knowing I could never change it. Coming out was the greatest thing I ever accomplished. Taking a stand and saying this is who I am and there's not a damn thing wrong with me!
Fast forward ten years later and I'm happily married to my husband Kory of 6 years and have turned my passion of Star Wars into a business replicating costumes in the films. Now as a City Of Fountains Sister, I can be a voice in our community centered in the Bible Belt of America for those that are growing up or have grown up in a situation similar to my own and know that there's nothing wrong with being who you are. No man in Heaven or Hell can tell you any different. Stay strong and never mess with a princess.
