When I first saw myself

Years went by and still go by before seeing people who look like you in cartoons,movies, art etc.
I know far too well how you can go most of your life never being represented in media the way you should be. So when you first see yourself you can't ever forget it.
So heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time.
It's a sense of validation, you're not an alien, nothing is wrong with you and you deserve to take up space in this world.
