Colorado Valedictorian Evan Young Gives His Banned Graduation Speech on ‘The Nightly Show’

A high school valedictorian in Colorado named Evan Young was recently banned from giving his graduation speech because he refused to edit out the part at the end where he came out to his entire school, but thankfully The Nightly Show stepped in to save the day by flying Young out to the studio and offering him a much bigger venue to give his speech (only slightly edited due to Young’s love for Stephen Colbert, which Larry Wilmore finds unacceptable). If your heart feels a little cold this morning, Young’s speech will change that for you right away.
