Will Phillips for President 2030.

Will Phillips was awarded the Outstanding Television segment award at the GLAAD Media Awards on March 13. This is his acceptance speech:

Here's the money quote:
"I believe that activism is important. Activism is change. It is the fuel, lubricant and engine that drives the slowing moving turtle-mobile that is progress."

This is the face of the next generation. We adults may struggle to understand and come to grips with LGBT rights but it is a non-issue for kids like Will. As Andrew Sullivan would say - Know Hope.
