I have long shared this information with my family, close friends and the powerlifting community. But I also understand that for many of you my news will come as a shock. I have kept the secret throughout my life and it was very difficult for me. Frankly, at some point in time I was thinking about suicide.

I never wanted or asked such a fate and struggled with my thoughts to the last. In the end, I reached the point where I felt comfortable in secret desires, regardless of what people would think.

Over the past 24 hours I have received a huge amount of words of support from my family, friends, fans and just strangers. I want to thank each of you! Honestly, it means more to me than I could describe in words. ”

Although, on the other hand, what’s the difference … Anyway, the person from bodybuilding environment.

In one of the numerous interviews, “Jane Marie” replied that she is LESBIAN, i.e. Those letters with offers to eat borscht from men, which he / she receives, come to the wrong address.

Please don’t ever let anyone make you feel like there is something wrong with you because they lack the ability to understand you. People in general have a tendency to fear what they do not understand. This fear often leads to hate and people will use this to justify mistreating you. Realize this and recognize they are the ones with the problem not you. “
