Graeme Taylor Came Out Of The Closet By Walking Out Of a Closet

Fourteen-year-old Michigan superstar Graeme Taylor, who came to high school teacher Jay McDowell’s defense at a school board meeting, is an eloquent, confident, beautiful old soul. Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres today, he says he came out to his friends last year by literally walking out of a closet. ADORABLE.

  • Fitz

    Amazingly articulate and well poised. He handles everything better than a seasoned public speaker!


    This kid is poised, confident, intelligent and couragous. I only wish all the Gay teens who have committed suicide had the opportunity to see that being born Gay does not sentence one to horrors during the teen years…………

    Graeme Taylor: You may not realize it, but your having the balls to come out so very publicly and with such an awesome message of hope has actually saved the lives of fellow Gay teens. Keep on keeping on with your message of true hope for Gay teens……
