    Here's what they shared:

    1. "Gay marriage even in conservative countries. A lot of countries still discriminate them and hopefully in 20 years it will change."

    2. "Sex work. Or frankly just having NSFW social media accounts with one's own pics on them in general. There will be less of a stigma."
