Video summary:
At the presentation of senior class awards (Class Clown, Most Likely to Succeed, etc.), with six months left in the school year, an LGBT teen publicly announces during his acceptance speech for Class Actor award that he is an LGBT teen and is tired of acting as someone he's not on a daily basis. His classmates clearly approve. He is currently a freshman at the University of Miami.

Note: On 1/26/14 I discontinued allowing auto-post comments because it was getting too difficult to monitor and pretty much anything that can be said on both sides of the issue has already been said. Prior to that ALL NEGATIVE COMMENTS **WERE POSTED** IN THEIR ENTIRETY because I believe in the free debate of issues. That having been said, hate-based comments, personal attacks, obvious "Trolling" statements designed to start response wars, religious zealotry with condemnations to Hell, Purgatory, eternal damnation and the like do not qualify as negative comments--they are vitriol that adds nothing to intelligent discourse and were removed, as were responses to such posts calling the original poster an idiot, etc.
