High Schooler Comes Out in Speech To Entire School Assembly

Despite being “terrified… of losing friends and loved ones” (I felt nervous just watching), this high school girl, whose name is Kayla Kearney, gives a pretty emphatic and well-delivered speech in which she comes out to an entire school assembly held on MLK day. It’s nice that the high school filmed and supported it. Good job Kayla. TC mark

      what the fuck
      announcing something doesn't make you an 'attention whore'
      seems like this would attract more negative attention than positive attention

    Coming out speeches have a distinct, nervous tone, because the speaker is trying to force out something, to reveal private information to a public. But this speech is not convincing as a coming out speech. This speech is so dressed it doesn't sound like she's coming out of anything.

    But then speeches can be rehearsed.

    Good for her to come out.

  • Alex

    seems really melodramatic. not very poignant. too rehearsed.

  • shoehorn

    you would have to be pretty jaded to diss a high schooler for doing something like this. cool.

  • NoahTourjee

    gay guys are cool i have no problem with them but i don't like lesbians. one time i dated a girl who became a lesbian. i never got over it or something. i was so hurt and sad. lesbians make me feel sad and dizzy. i hate lesbians. damn. i have issues.

    Oh my gosh is Alex and I. OCEANIC reviewing her coming out story.

    I like that Brandon Scott Gorrell is posting something that is gay themed. When need more straight people talking about gay people on this site. I'm getting tired of Ryan O'Connell representing us gays. He is too gay and quirky sometimes.
