Florida Student Finds Clever Way To Shred 'Don't Say Gay' Law In Graduation SpeechZander Moricz, 18, quipped about his curly hair after he says school officials pledged to shut off his microphone if he referenced his LGBTQ advocacy work. Note to the principal, being gay is not a personal political statement. “…a graduation should not be a platform for personal political statements” Brilliant. The metaphor of curly vs. straight hair as gay vsn straight living is a great way for a gay rights advocate to get their point across to a hostile administration and receptive audience. Absolutely brilliant!! Loved the metaphor!! I will never understand why some people want to step back into the dark ages. What people choose to be or think or do, in the privacy of their own lives is no one's business but their own!! GAY LGBTQ Equality
