Fort Worth councilman Joel Burns received nationwide media attention last month for his speech during a city meeting in which he revealed some of the torment and abuse he faced as a gay teen.

I conclude with some remarks on the underlying source of the cultural challenges faced by those with an alternative sexual orientation and how libertarian principles can be used to overcome them.
