Hey @taylorswift @taylornation,
My name is Blake and I’m a 20 year old male from Mississippi. I’m currently wearing the softest Cornelia Street shirt ever. I grew up in the south surrounded by every country artist you could think of, including you. In my teenage years I grew up listening to pop radio with my step-sister in her car, and I remember specific memories of singing Blank Space, Style, and Out of the Woods from the passenger side. 💘 In 2017, I started college and realized in the fall that Taylor Swift was a voice of self-awareness, retaking the narrative, and queen of snakes.
reputation was my first TS era and I was for a few months a casual fan. Then, in 2018, I became a stan account with the clever pun “ablakespace”. It’s my proudest joke.
But I’ve never felt more connected with any album than Lover. The pinks and blues, the surrounding of great love and crashing with friends in the living rooms, the hoping of never losing someone, and a call to gay rights. The Letter to My Senator movement you started, and seeing LGBTQ+ issues on such a public platform made me feel inspired to come out on June 1, 2019. In July 2019, a boy you would hug named Kody Thiel, my Internet crush of over a year, became a boy that liked me back. We’ve been talking and will meet for the first time IRL on July 31, 2020 at Lover Fest East Night 1. I’ll also be there with my 3 best friends Savanna, Jack, and Kaitlyn. We’ll all be hugging, and it would be a pleasure to hug you as well… if you wanna come along?
Hopefully I can meet you soon buddy. ✨
