    from what we know so far

    he is a brave kid in deed, parents should be proud!

    wonder if this school had approval over his speech and they knew before hand?

    Yeah, but that type of bullying can go on even if you are not homosexual. What matters is the popular perception that you are gay.

    High school can be an amazingly cruel place if you're different

    Yeah, I know. I'd say it's brave if an over weight kid got up there and did the same. In fact, just speaking in front of thousands is difficult enough for many.

    I was more pointing out it's silly to think someone couldn't be teased while being in the closet, when popular perception is what matters

    Oh, my bad. But yeah, from surveys I've seen even a lot of hetero kids are assumed gay and bullied for that reason.

    And if the school had said he couldn't go there but he did anyway?

    Props to a kid coming out like that. Even more so props to a kid in Texas for coming out like that.
