    Dear everyone who is part of EC,

    Thank you. I am beyond grateful.

    To the staff- you are amazing. You are all volunteers and you take time away from all the stuff you have going on to be there for all of us.

    The creators of this wonderful community- thank you. Whoever thought of the idea for the EC forum is literally a genius.

    To all the members- I appreciate all of you. You are all so amazing and so strong.

    I owe a lot to EC. Without this community, without each and every one of you... Sharing your stories, your paths, your journeys, supporting and advising everyone.... I wouldn't have got to where I am today. I mean no I'm not exactly where I want to be but I feel like things are getting there.

    Anyways thank you all so much. I love and appreciate you with all my heart.

    Love, Charlie

    I totally agree with you Charlie. I am so happy I found this forum, when I first started doing research and just reading everyone's stories gave me more courage and hope, they also changed how I view things and give me new knowledge. Withouth EC I don't know how I would've handled myself. I now know that I'm not the only one who have these thoughts and I don't feel that alone either. Thank you EC.

    That's lovely to hear and to be honest you kinda took the words right out of my mouth. I couldn't agree more. :slight_smile:

    @CharlieLuca & @Rayland.....Thank you from all of us here on the staff and for that matter from everyone here! I feel the same way that you do. The wonderful people here on Empty Closets saved me from a very bad decision six and-a-half years ago and I will forever be grateful. Then they helped the "baby gay me" learn so much about myself and about the LGBTQIA+ Family for the next year until I connected with a therapist for the first time. Because of that I will forever be in debt to EC, which is at least part of the reason that I spend time here. I want to help those who are trying to find themselves just as I was. I know that everyone who is on staff feels the same way as well and also many members who donate their time on the site to help others. We're here to help each other...that's why I call it the LGBTQIA+ Family!

    Aw that's so lovely, David. I'm glad EC has helped you. And that is very true, it is the LGBTQIA+ family. WE are part of the LGBTQIA+ family. And I can't speak for anyone else but I know for a fact that I am absolutely honoured to be part of this amazing family and community.

    Well, it's the truth. :slight_smile:

    Yes it certainly is true. 100% true.

    I wouldn’t doubt that at all.
