“It took me years to come out to her out of fear that she would see me differently, but nothing changed. She said, ‘Okay, that’s fine.’ She taught me to love and accept all people, and she has always been supportive of me,” Lexie added.

Then, she tweeted a photo of her with her grandmother, which also gained a lot of attention.

“WOW this is blowing up so here’s another picture of my grandma because I want the world to see how beautiful she is! Show her some love! Happy pride y’all”, she continued.

Happy Pride, indeed!
