Nominate Youth Advocate as Grand Marshal

I would like to nominate Caleb Laieski as our Grand Marshal. I am very inspired by this young man and I think he would be a great addition to our cities pride. By LGBTQ Nation....

Caleb Laieski, a 17-year-old former high school student who was bullied, followed home and threatened for being gay, is now working for the city as a youth and diversity liaison for Mayor Greg Stanton, and will serve as a point of contact for youth issues.

Laieski dropped out of high school last year and completed his G.E.D. after he was repeatedly threatened with violence and death threats because he is gay — threats that he said were ignored by teachers and school administrators.
