(CNN) – Ten-year-old Kameron Slade has become an online sensation, and it’s all due to one speech.
Slade wanted to deliver a speech supporting same-sex marriage for a contest at his Queens, New York, elementary school, but the principal deemed it inappropriate and barred him from making it.
After word of his plight went viral, including YouTube videos of him reading the speech, Slade was eventually allowed to deliver his remarks at a different school assembly. Last week, he appeared before the New York City Council, again delivering his call to accept same-sex marriage.
