Gay Bullying Needs To Stop.

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.

For more information on each of the cases, just click on the names.

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.
