Krysta Montoya decided to make a declaration about her sexuality by using a secret “Grey’s Anatomy” reference as her senior quote in her school yearbook.
Montoya, an 18-year-old student from Albuquerque, New Mexico, made her senior quote” Grey’s Anatomy Season 5, Episode 6, 39:40.”
The message refers to the timestamp of when Erica reveals to Callie that, “I am so, so, so gay.”
“Just because everyone keeps asking me what my quote is. Here ya go,” Montoya tweeted along with a screenshot of the quote.

Montoya told BuzzFeed that she came out as a freshman in high school but people didn’t take her seriously. She wanted to make it clear that she knows who she is.
“I feel as if some people did not believe me,” Montoya says. “In fact, throughout high school, people said by senior year I’d be dating a boy. So I think I did this to make a bold statement towards that comment from some of my peers.”
Montoya says she came up with the idea for her senior quote while watching “Grey’s Anatomy.”
“I was just watching Grey’s Anatomy one day and I loved it and I said ‘this will be my senior quote'”, Montoya says. “I took a screenshot and it’s been in my camera roll ever since.”
