Jacob Rudolph, a New Jersey high school senior, went up to receive his award for Best Actor, and told the entire school assembly that he’s such a good actor he’s been acting straight his whole life, but he’s actually LGBT. And then his classmates gave him a standing ovation.
And then MSNBC called him and he got an interview with Thomas Roberts.
By the way, MSNBC seems to have gotten one part wrong. Rudolph seems to have said he’s an “LGBT teen,” but MSNBC reported LGBTT, and came up with a graphic to support it, which, seemly, is incorrect.
