It happened during the last week of September, but it was a sad story for everyone. Rutgers student Tyler Clementi commited suicide as he jumped off the George Washington Bridge after his roommate and his friend streamed a live sex show with another man. In addition, 13-year-old Seth Walsh hung himself, 13-year-old Asher Brown shot himself, and 15-year-old freshman Billy Lucas hung himself from a tree. All teenagers have been victims for anti-gay bullying and ended their life in September. The LGBT community is mourning and outrage has sparked amongst human rights organizations.
Also noted, Glee aired a PSA for the LGBT community through actor Chris Colfer as an urgent response,. After the religion-themed episode, Colfer provided the voice for the LGBT community with an empowering and sad line that speaks for a lot of outsiders:
“[God] makes me gay and then makes His followers go around saying it’s a choice, as if I’d choose to be mocked every day of my life.”
Anyways, here’s the video. Enjoy.
