Steven Boyle is a 20-years-old college student who was in the closet his whole life, until he decided to come out in the most creative way -- by reading the poem he wrote in his poetry class to the rest of his classmates after changing all the gender pronouns from she/her to he/him.
In speaking with The Gaily Grind, Steven revealed, "While I've never been afraid of public speaking, the thought of telling a room full of people my innermost thoughts, scared the ever living shit out of me."
The poem is about Steven's ex-crush who he said had broken his heart. Steven's well written words very aptly describe the nerves and anxiety we all feel when we have a crush on somebody.
The recital was interactive, fun, and very nice to watch indeed.

Back to the recital... Steven said that that night was "one of the most memorable" of his life.
Well good for him.
And even better for us.
