Interview with a teen advocate for LGBT youth
Caleb Laieski is a 16 year old advocate for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) youth. Last year Caleb was bullied and harassed at his high school in Arizona, which resulted in him getting his school and district to update its anti-discrimination policy and include protection for LGBT students in the student handbook.
After being invited to attend the White House Conference on Bullying in March 2011, Caleb returned to D.C. to meet with nearly 200 members of Congress and congressional offices to advocate for the Student Non-Discrimination Act currently pending before Congress.
He also had the opportunity to meet with President Obama as well as Vice President Biden.
Hear what Caleb has to say as a bullied youth turned LGBT advocate who is not afraid to use his voice.
