“I came out in my music because I knew there were thousands if not millions of little Sonias out there who were choking off the beauty of their souls by not being true to themselves and their sexuality. I know firsthand what it is like to hide your sexuality, and I don’t want that to happen to anyone else.” ~ SONiA disappear fear
