Valedictorian told not to come out during graduation speech

As valedictorian of his high school, Evan Young was preparing for his graduation speech. In this speech on tolerance and acceptance, Evan planned to reveal to his classmates that he was gay.

After reviewing his speech, Evan’s principal instructed him he would not be able to give his speech unless he removed the portion in which he comes out as a homosexual.

Refusing to trash the integrity of his speech, Evan’s Colorado high school denied him the privilege of speaking.

Hearing this story, the folks at The Nightly Show decided to invite him on the show to share his message on national television – like a boss.

Boom! Take that high school! Now you look dumb and Evan’s badassness is going viral. Big ups my man.
