Sometimes fifth graders end up doing things others can only think about. Much similar has been the situation of the 10-year-old Kameron Slade who was supposed to deliver a pro-gay marriage speech at a school wide competition.
However, the fifth grader at P.S. 195 William Haberle in Queens, New York was stopped from delivering his speech on the orders of his principal Beryl Bailey. As a result, Slade chose a different topic and hence lost the contest.
Nevertheless, his speech gained national attention after it was shared with NY1. Since then Slade has been invited to speak before the City Council and at various other gay pride events.
