Getting cancer is the worst thing that’s ever happened to me, but in the strangest of ways it has also been the best thing.”

She concluded the news article by writing, “Okay, so maybe saying cancer is the best thing that ever happened to me is a bit of a stretch, but it certainly isn’t a witch’s curse either… and if it is, then that witch certainly has a sense of humor.”

Samantha revealed in June 2022 that she was queer. Then, she penned, “When I was little I remember teachers separating the class into boys vs girls. Standing with the girls I wondered why I felt so different from them, like I didn’t belong. I told myself that something was wrong with me. When I was a teenager and started auditioning for more grown-up roles, I would stare at the pages wondering what a ‘normal girl’ would act like – I sure as hell didn’t know.”

She added, “When classmates talked about having *segs* or hooking up, I would stare blankly at them like an alien – I told myself I was a prude. When I got on stage with my band wearing clothes showing off my breasts, I felt exposed, wrong… so I started wearing androgynous clothing because it just felt right – I felt like myself when I broke the gender rules.”

Weinstein continued, “When I had a crush on female friends, I would push that down into a box – that wasn’t me! I was a good, normal, hetero girl, and I was just inventing some fantasy. Sure, I loved the queer community and had always felt a pull toward them, but that was just because I was a good ally! It was probably all in my head…”
