Jennifer's Story - Video Jennifer volunteers with Birmingham Opera Company in the chorus. This is her story. I think it’s important for everyone to have a creative outlet because if no one's being creative, nothing in the world can happen. At school, I thought I might be gay, bisexual, I didn’t know.

I didn’t really know anyone…and in the end, I started making some friends.
