Nerd vs Gay

Andrew Sullivan is a right leaning, Catholic in exile, gay man and political commentator. One of the most powerful things I’ve seen on the internet over the last year is the It Gets Better project – at times I’ve wept copiously at the genuine stories. However, Sullivan has not done an It Gets Better video. Why? Because he had a great high school career where he was more stigmatized by the fact that he was smart. It’s an interesting commentary about the complexity of experience for the gay adolescent.
