Hey there Guys,
I just saw this amazing video and had to share it. On receipt of his “class actor” award Jacob Rudolph chose this time to share his homosexuality to his whole school. This was a huge step for this man. It’s heart warming to see the support he got from the rapturous applause at the end of his speech.
“Sure I’ve been in a few plays and musicals, but more importantly, I’ve been acting every single day of my life,” Rudolph said.
“You see, I’ve been acting as someone I’m not.
“Most of you see me every day. You see me acting the part of ‘straight’ Jacob, when I am in fact LGBT. Unlike millions of other LGBT teens who have had to act every day to avoid verbal harassment and physical violence, I’m not going to do it anymore.
“I am what I am, and that’s how I’m going to act from now on.”
Rock on Jacob. Stand proud.
Yours in good health.
