MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) — An alumnus of a Michigan Catholic high school who wasn’t allowed to speak at its graduation ceremony because he’s gay has delivered his planned talk to the graduates at a different location.

Dominic Sheahan-Stahl gave the address Sunday at Central Michigan University’s Warriner Hall in Mount Pleasant.

The 32-year-old actor had been invited to speak at Sacred Heart Academy’s graduation ceremony Sunday, but the invitation was withdrawn.

Sheahan-Stahl is a 1998 graduate of the Mount Pleasant prep school and now lives in New York City. His youngest brother is in this year’s graduating class. ( ) says Sheahan-Stahl wore a white T-shirt bearing the words “Live Through Love.”

Sacred Heart graduates occupied the first three rows of the auditorium, wearing their red and white graduation gowns.
