Evan Young of Longmont, Colorado was banned from making his valedictorian speech at his own graduation from Twin Peaks Charter Academy High School. He submitted a draft of the speech to administrators and then provided them a revised speech where he made all the changes they asked for but one. He had planned to come out as gay during the speech but the school would not permit him to include any references to his sexual orientation. The principal then called Young's parents about the issue, outing him without his consent in the process.

Ultimately, Young was not allowed to speak at his graduation. He did get the chance to deliver his speech after all at a fundraising event for Out Boulder, a Colorado LGBT advocacy group and on national television on The Nightly Show.

Australian musician Axel Winter was getting ready to perform at Sydney Mardi Gras last weekend, when he noticed a man with a Bible spewing anti-gay rhetoric on the street.

“He was saying hateful things towards gay people themselves. He said at one point ‘today is the day that god hates you most,'” he told Gay Star News.

So he decided to fight back, by drowning out the man’s words with music.

Axel and some other musicians near the Pitt Street Mall set up their things and started playing Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” as the crowd cheered them on.

At one point he even took some liberties with the lyrics singing “some boys take a beautiful boy and they hide her away from the rest of the world.”

The plan worked, and eventually the preacher left.

Winter says he was raised a Christian, but he thinks everyone should be treated with respect.

“Thank you Sydney for taking a stand for equality,” he wrote on Facebook. “Whether you’re homosexual or transgender or even just confused, you’re still my friend.”
