“Just like you and I, don’t have a choice over the color of our skin.”
This is one of the most compelling and inspiring speeches I have heard concerning about gay sexuality and coming out. Especially somebody who decided to come out during a high school assembly speech. That is a lot of courage.
Everything that is needed to be said is in this speech like how it is a not a choice, how hard we try to be straight but feels so incomplete, the bullying, and frustration. It is not easy being gay especially here in the Philippines who has one of the cruelest mentalities that I have ever experienced.
So if ever you know someone who is closeted or in-question, don’t force it because you are not making it any easier.
