Tell Me Again Why This Person Is Running Across The Brooklyn Bridge In Stilletos?

Could it be because he’s actually not too bad at it? Hmm. Watch:

In his own words (Huffington Post):

“When I told my parents that I was gay, I didn’t know what would come of it. I didn’t know that, five years later, I would be studying at an amazing school, surrounded by a supportive community and filled to the top with love. On that December night my life could have taken a turn for the worse; my parents could have kicked me out of the house….

Kick me out of the house and five years later everything would be different. I doubt that I would be studying human rights at Duke, or that I would be in New York for the semester working at the United Nations, or that I would have been invited to the White House this past summer for the president’s annual LGBT pride reception.”
