From Logo.com “At last month’s GLAAD Media Awards, Sivan, who came out publicly on YouTube at the age of 14, became the youngest recipient of the Stephen F. Kolzak Award, which is presented to LGBT media professionals who promote equality and acceptance in their work and life. He honored trailblazing LGBT activists like Peter Staley, Marsha P. Johnson, Sylvia Rivera, and Gilbert Baker in his acceptance speech.”
