(CNN)Savannah, 12, made a decision this January; she was going to come out as lesbian at her Mormon Church. Nothing was going to stop her.
She’s a normal almost-teenage girl in Utah: She loves to draw and make art. When she grows up, she wants to be a Disney animator. Her favorite bands are Imagine Dragons and Fall Out Boy.
On June 22, 2016, one day after her birthday, Savannah came out to her parents as lesbian.
Mom had suspicions and knew that day might come.
“I looked at her and said, ‘OK, I love you. And I’ll support you no matter what you do,'” said Heather, her mother.
