Steven: I'm.. I'm very proud, I''m very grateful to have won for the school. But I... I feel a bit of a fraud. You see I wrote about growing up as how I imagined it must be for most of you but... there was another article which was to have been included in the school magazine. It was censored because it was about a young guy who just happened to be gay. (pause and breath) I... I wrote that article. I wish you could have read it so you could understand. Oh god this is so hard. I'm sick of feeling totally alone, I want to have friends who like me for what I am, I want to be part of a family who loves me for who I am, not someone I pretend to be to keep their love. I'm sick of hiding, of being sad and scared. Have you got any idea? There must be more of you who feel like this, like I do. Why not just speak out? Thanks for proving my point. Well... I'm gay. Sorry mum, dad but you can bet your life your not the only parents out there with a gay son. It's only love, what's everyone so scared of? Thanks for listening.
