“If I can be of help to anybody that is trying to come out or trying to find their way,” O’Toole told DC News Now. “You know it’s just kind of like, ‘hey, look it’s just a part of me, it’s not all of me.’ And it’s something that who I live is just a piece and at the end of the day I’m a pro golfer, there’s a lot of other things I like to do, but it’s just continue being who you are, you can’t go wrong there and those that appreciate you and those that you love you know matter what will be in your life and that’s all that matters.”
