One year after coming out, Darren Young reflects on the joys of self-acceptance in a blog post for Huffington Post, titled "What I've Learned Since Coming Out." In the post, Young thanks WWE and the WWE Universe for their support, and he encourages everyone to stay true to themselves. Young also wants to reach out through Be a STAR and other initiatives to ensure everyone knows they have support. Young said in the article:
"When bullying is given a place in our schools, workplaces, or anywhere else, everyone loses. I always try to make myself available and approachable so kids feel they have someone to turn to in times of need. My message is this: Don't be afraid to be yourself, and don't let fear stand in the way of your true happiness."
