Uni, a non-gender-specific Unicorn, finds themselves to be the 'lone ranger' amongst their community of horses. Within this fairytale universe, the horses around Uni adhere to very strict norms. Uni realizes that they were created differently from the rest of the horses, but they face adversity with grace and pride. Despite being singled out for their uniqueness, Uni stands strong in their own truth. With their natural sparkle and determined demeanor, Uni shows the other horses (and the world) that their differences are what make them so special!
The fable serves as a parallel for the experiences of queer youth. From being ostracized, and feeling 'different' from one's peers, Uni undergoes some of the struggles of lacking representation. Despite feeling alone and dealing with judgement, Uni stood tall and true to themselves. The 'winning of the race' is symbolic of overcoming the struggle of existing as oneself when LGBTQIA+, and of being prideful in your identity.
In the end, by living freely and confidently, even the horses that made fun of Uni were made to see the error of their ways. The message to take away is ultimately to be comfortable in your own skin, and to create your own definition of 'normal'. Even though their lifestyle and identity wasn't 'normal' to the other horses, Uni lived proudly and set an example that there are different ways to exist. Through their strength and visibility, Uni was able to change the horses' perception of what a winner was. The horses learned then, that judging someone for being different is pointless, and that there might even be new things to learn from those who live differently than themselves.
