Gay, lesbian and transgender youth have a MUCH higher suicide rate than their heterosexual peers. Fact.

SOMETHING must be done to reach out to them more!!!!

Billy Lucas, Asher Brown, Seth Walsh, Tyler Clementi and now Raymond Chase, 19, from Monticello, New York.

We have just lost a 5th young soul this week - that we know of - who is either gay or the victim or gay bullying. The 5th suicide in less than three weeks and the 3rd death just this week alone!

It is just devastating for us to report that we have learned that Raymond Chase, an openly gay sophomore at Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island , studying culinary arts committed suicide on Wednesday, several students have informed us.

The 19 year old is believed to have hung himself in his dormitory.

Ronald Martel, Ph.D., Vice President of Student Affairs and Dean of Students, sent the following email to students on Thursday.

Today I contact you with the deeply sad news of the passing of Raymond Chase, sophomore, 19, culinary arts major. The campus community is mourning the loss of this vibrant young man who leaves many JWU friends and teachers, and a loving family of Monticello, New York.

Funeral arrangements are not available at this time. As we obtain more information that can be shared, we will do so. Ray's JWU friends and the university are planning a memorial service for the campus community. Those details will be forthcoming.

In the meantime, I encourage anyone who is having a difficult time to seek the services available at Student Counseling. Our staff of professionals is here to work with all of you during this sorrowful time. Their help and confidentiality is a benefit that you should consider.

Student Counseling services are available at the The Friedman Center, 2nd floor, Harborside Campus and at Wales (formerly Plantations) Hall, 2nd Floor, Downcity Campus. Call 401-598-1016 to reach both locations.

By expressing the university community's condolences to Ray's family, I join you during this time of bereavement.

THIS HAS TO STOP!!!!!

This is a trend that is NOT FASHIONABLE!

Suicide is never an option!

Please, please, please, TALK to your sons, brothers, cousins, friends, roommates! If someone you know is gay or questioning and going through a hard time, OFFER YOUR HELP.

Sometimes people just want to know someone is there to listen.

And, if you need someone to talk to yourself, please call the trained professionals at The Trevor Project and speak anonymously!

One life lost is bad enough but 3 in one week and 5 in less than three weeks is unacceptable!!!

    Sad, but people die every minute….
    stop being biased



  2. 2

    You're helping the gay community so much, we're thankful for this!



  3. 3

    of course it is so sad when ANYONE commits suicide. but what about all the other people who have committed suicide this week? im sure there are plenty of straight kids who were made fun of and did the same thing. the theme shouldnt be because they are gay, the theme should be teenage suicide in general.



  4. 4

    Too much public attention may be giving them ideas and planting the seed in their head?



  5. 5

    haha teens are such sheep



  6. 6

    so sad, but its weird how this is happening in the States, one of the most ignorant countries, so its not that hard to believe.



  7. 7

    This is heartbreaking



  8. 8

    completely devastating!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Awful.



  9. 9

    Why don't you care for straight people?



  10. 10

    Now you're just sensationalizing on the whole thing. Just go back to sucking Gaga's dick it's all you're good for anyway.



  11. 11

    Perez i know you mean well but this isn't new. Over 1 million people commit suicide each year, and many of them are a result of bullying. You should focus on suicide as a whole and not just the ones committed by gay/lesbian people.



  12. 12

    Ok, yes, this is awful. Suicide is terrible, especially in teenagers. But do we know if this had anything to do with him being bullied? In my opinion, college students are under enough pressure and have high enough suicide rates as it is. The fact that he is gay does not change that.



  13. 13

    This is 50 Cent's fault.



  14. 14

    suicide a permanent solution to a temporary problem this has to stop but unfortunately they tend to copycat it for unknown reasons

    good on u perez for trying to help



  15. 15

    What about all the other teenagers who have died that weren't GAY!

    Death is death…..you are so narrow minded trying to make this a GAY thing.

    Weak minded teenagers kill themselves every month….stop trying to make it a GAY thing. These people killed themselves because they didn't like their life not because they were GAY.



  16. 16

    every negative comment could cause another person to feel the need to commit suicide just keep your negative comments to yourself or in a place where its not going to affect people in a negative way. just be respective.



  17. 17

    What about queer daughters and sisters?



  18. 18

    whether you are gay or straight suicide is just sad



  19. 19

    Re: ladykk22 – YOu mean people like Perez who is glorifying the situation.

    We all agree on that.



  20. 20

    Why just gay boys? Why don't you mention gay girls as well?



  21. 21

    It's religions fault….It's the biggest scam EVER



  22. 22

    Re: supmagooch – Well said!



  23. 23

    Re: Eliazar Rodriguez – Biased? Youth risks surveys rate gay youth as four times more likely to commit suicide than their heterosexual peers. Other studies show this rate to be even higher.



  24. 24

    Alright Perez I know you are a man, but go ahead and add sisters and gf's to that list,



  25. 25

    I'm on the board of a Non-Profit Organization that provides local assistance for people in crisis and/or survivors of suicide. I'm very glad that Perez is posting about this crisis and I hope he's doing it from the heart, not because he has to have a cause because Lady Gaga is fighting for DADT. Again, kudos Perez and I'm sorry to doubt you but your reputation prooceeds you.



  26. 26

    Did you know that the publicity of suicides in media, such as this website, is shown to increase suicide rates? People tend to like the idea of being publicly mourned, especially if they feel alone while they are alive. The advertisement of suicides, such as this post, only increases suicide rates.

    I suggest you think on this when you write about suicide on your website, especially considering that many gay youth read this blog.



  27. 27

    This is such a tragedy. This week I my childs principal called me concerning bullying and it made me sick thinking that my child was pretending to be sick just to get out of attending school, riding the school bus, etc….My child is not gay, however has become a target of bullying. It pulls at my heart anytime I hear this. We all have to stand our ground and refuse to allow bullying to stay a 'right of passage'. Why can't we all just spread love, instead of hate and pain.



  28. 28

    as sad as it is…and i dont mean this in a heartless way…but its more then just gays who commit suicide over bullying. white,black,skinny,fat,tall,short,straight or gay…they ALL go through this..shining a light on just gay teen suicide makes it seem like all the other teen suicide doesnt matter. if anything we should be putting a light on ALL teen suicide.



  29. 29

    i agree. perez i love you. such a horrible thing to happen to such a young man. prayers with his family..not gay however that fact that such "americans" no matter what race, sexulality or gender or pushed to the point. and for it to be swept under the rug and not make national news so young americans know how the country cares,and feels is is tea party bullshit….this is the real USA!!



  30. 30

    he's not being biased. have you ever heard of anybody getting harassed for being heterosexual? some people have no heart … weak? maybe … cowards? go fuck yourself! do not judge somebody when you don't know what they're going through. some people are made stronger and/or have support to help them cope with life, some people are not as blessed. and when people commit suicide instead of calling them names we should ask ourselves what we, as a society, shoulve done to prevent it. because of assholes like you, mnlesniak, some people think that the only way to stop the pain is to commit suicide.



  31. 31

    Look I'm not trying to downplay how awful suicide is, especially when it's kids. But the truth of the matter is that bullying happens to both straight and gay people. Is it right? No. Absolutely not. But it happens. What about the straight kids that commit suicide, do you have no sympathy for them? My point is, most gays say that their sexual preference is just a part of them, but it doesn't define them–but you're defining their suicides as a result of them being gay. Why do you have to make that point at all. Why can't it be about bullying, why can't it be about teenage depression, why can't it just be about the suicide. Yes this needs to stop–but not because people are picking on the gay kids. This needs to stop because gay or straight, suicide is not the answer.



  32. 32

    aren't we supposed to be working towards equality for all?? I feel extremely sad for all the lives that have been lost, but young people are bullied and commit suicide every day, regardless of their sexuality. I think we need to work towards stopping bullying for all young people and not JUST the gay community.

    It is embarrasing to live in a country where ppl come from all over the world to look for a way out of other countries screwed up laws only to be faced with situations like this. There are so many f*ED up situations where ever you are and being gay shouldnt be one of them. Who are we to judge anyone bc of their choices. REALITY CHECK THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BTWN GAYS AND US IS THEY LIKE THE SAME SEX when did that become a crime. Driving home today I heard about the students from Rutgers and i was disgusted how can one individual find so much pleasure out of outing someone like that. And regarding the comment someone wrote b4 about being weak its not weakness its feeling like you are doing something wrong and thats how society makes them feel like they are an outcast come on ppl these young ppl killing themselves are not the first gay ppl and wont be the last. Noone is perfect and being gay is not an imperfection its a way of life. Get a grip of reality and realize we have bigger things to worry about.
    God was placed in a cross to erase our sins who are we to judge anyone



  34. 34

    we all lovee n miss u ray so much shyt will neva eva b da same w.o u ..u were an amazinqq person u knew how to put a smilee on nebodysz face no matta who is was damn i cant belivee im writnqq rip to my brother from another but we will deff meet again one day we gnna livee it up for u RIOT Class09



  35. 35

    I live in the same community as Asher's family. My little brother goes to the same school he did and because the treatment he received from his peers and the lack of attention the school pays to bullying the world lost a wonderful person. The bullying in that school is out of control! The faculty seems to turn the other cheek ignoring their own no tolerance policies they keep boasting in the media. This situation is absolutely heart breaking, even more so knowing the school does nothing to protect their students in their own hallways. No matter your age, ethnicity , sexual orientation, religion, ect. we are all human and deserve the same treatment. My heart and my prayers go out to all of the families affected by the recent losses.



  36. 36

    I grew up in RI and know a lot of people who went to JWU…including my husband. I'm sad to see this man killed himself, but are you sure he committed suicide because of bullying? it seems that because he's gay you're assuming it was because of bullying. I don't know what the circumstances are because the article wasn't very clear. but if the campus is in a state of shock and mourning, then I don't think the cause was because of bullying.

    From my experiences people have always been more open about their sexuality in the north east as opposed to the south, so yea, I'm not saying it was or wasn't cause of bullying but find out before generalizing gay suicides. K thanks :P



  37. 37

    Omg noooo!!! .I hate how this has to happen, but Perez , i would love it if you made a big deal out of something more people can relate to , like suicide as a whole. There are many kids out there who have thought of suicide, who aren't gay/lesbian/or transgendered.Im sure they would love support too.



  38. 38

    Uhhh, what about SISTERS & DAUGHTERS??



  39. 39

    It's strange to see what people will write about someone they have never meet and don't know…. Regardless of reason of death, Ray deserves to rest in peace.



  40. 40

    perez, how come you never post about other people out there who are being bullied and committing suicide? do you only care about gay people?



  41. 41

    Re: mnlesniak – you may have ur own opinion but that boy up there is my bestfriend/brother and he was the fucking strongest person i knew ok so before you fucking judge him learn your facts about the situation ok thanks smfh at ignorant people like you



  42. 42

    ok… enough is enough… there's gotta be something that can be done over teens in general committing suicide because they feel out of place or are being bully… this is just sad… my heart goes out to all the families in this difficult time



  43. 43

    I appreciate what you are trying to do here, but I'm concerned it's going to have a "Heather's" affect instead of the direction you are trying for. I think in this situation you should speak with professionals first before plastering this all over your site. If anyone is on the brink, the thought of immortality on your site may be the catalyst that pushes them over.

    Also, you always try to instill equality in us all. Please practice it yourself. Suicide is a overwhelming problem in gay and straight demographics. Kids commit suicide everyday as a result of being bullied for sexting, their financial status or for any simple reason. Kids are cruel to each other, gay or straight. Harsh words cut to the core when you are impressionable. Discrimination against anyone for any reason is wrong. I feel like in this situation you are discriminating against the larger majority of youth who are heterosexual and commit suicide. Reach out to all who need it. Use the platform you are fortunate enough to have to help anyone who feels like they have no place else to turn.



  44. 44

    This is just so sad. It's also sad how many pathetic people are on this site. I read the comments sometimes on other articles and I just tend to laugh at people who bash on Perez. If you don't like him then why are you on his blog? You do understand when you go on this site you're only helping him stay popular and gain more money from ads. You think he gives two shits about what you have to say? Absolutely not. He is living the rich life because of you while you're all still stuck in hick town U.S.A.
    Anyway, thank you Perez for talking about important issues like this and using your popularity to try and raise awareness on such an unfortunate series of events.



  45. 45

    i know this young man personally and go to school with him, he was an amazing person, vibrant and friendly. whether he was gay or not, we will never know why decided to do something like this and for everyone who thinks a negative comment about anyone committing suicide, you should be ashamed of yourself. this young man was loved by many people and had a large group of friends, who loved him dearly. suicide is a hard thing to understand and we may never understand why people choose to commit it. anyone who has a negative thought about anyone comitting suicide, think about this, how would you react if it was someone you loved or were very close with? would you still think the same way?? RIP RAY!! your sprit will go on in all of your friends!



  46. 46

    You mentions sons, brothers… do lesbians count for nothing?

  47. Lidz says – reply to this


    47

    Perez this is truly sad and suicide as a result of constant bullying is a major issue.However Perez ur such a fucking hypocrite!!The same celebrities ur constantly berating on your blog are the same ones you are now asking for help to make a videos for gay youth. U can't be a dick one day and an angel the next so plzz leave the celebrities alone and fight this cause on you own without their help.



  48. 48

    The best contribution you can make Perez is to lead by example and stop bullying others in your website. If you want to report on celebrity news do so but cut all the vitriol and hatred in your comments. There's already too much hatred in the world Think about it.



  49. 49

    Read and learn, Perez…Bullying of any kind is not cool. Think twice before posting next time.



  50. 50

    Re: crazychick911 – Exactly what I feel. Also, please take the "get this look" tag off of the pictures. It's disturbing.



  51. 51

    this happens all the time, you have just caught on



  52. 52

    From one Homo to another, have you ever thought that how you treat people on your blog scares the youngsters on how they could turn out? You're an awful example of being gay Perez. Your bitchiness and absurd comments piss me off and I'm confident in who I am. Take a look at yourself and the example you're setting for younger gays. It's hard to come out when "men” like you give the rest of us a bad name. Stop being a complete bitch. Just saying…



  53. 53

    Perez only cares about gay people and latinos.



  54. 54

    okayy first off.. this isnt neccessary right now.. this basically JUST HAPPEND.. and it's already on this website? ever heard of giving time to people to morn the life of this amazing boy.. no one on here knows anythingg about him or what he's been through except.. " oh he's gay and committed suicide." seriously!? get over yours selfs. and give friends and family time to morn the life of ray he was an amazinggg person and im sooo amn glad i met him! he made me smile and laugh when i met him he's amazingg.. this just made things worse then they needed to be…. ad what is all this talk of being weak and no sympathy.. blah blah.. really? i guess people these days.. just dont have heart anymore. rip ray we love you



  55. 55

    So it's ok for you to constantly make fun of celebrities and call them fat, ugly, whores, etc. and draw pictures on them and yet claim that's not bullying? you're just as bad as these kids who think it's ok to make fun of gay people



  56. 56

    Re: JoeDawg – Very well said, Joe!



  57. 57

    Re: URwhatUeat – that is COMPLETELY uncalled for… you do NOT know him or problems he may have had down inside.. you are veryy rude and have no heart!



  58. 58

    You are all being very immature. Perez has said alot of shit, but there is no need to critize him for being upset about this.



  59. 59

    Yes, very sad, but how do you know he killed himself because he was gay? And I agree, what about all the non teenagers and strait people all over the world every minute of every day. It is a sad issue, but it's not an isolated problem just among gay teens in the US, and it's definitely not a new one.



  60. 60

    UGH! Is it just me or is this becoming a fashion?Perhaps if we stop the media coverage on these horrible deaths gay people wont continue to take their own lives at this rate! I bet my life on it that in 3 weeks, 5 gay people wouldnt have killed themselves if Media coverage didnt exist.

    Re: Eliazar Rodriguez – Sad, but people die every minute….
    stop being biased
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Yeah but these youths are killing themselves b/c “BULLIES“ are fucking with their heads about being gay““““““` FUCK THAT!!! Everyone is entitled to BE “ who they are “““` PERIOD!!! Specially in todays' world“ where lesbians and gays “ can marry. So give me a “` fucking break that Perez is being BIASED!! And just so you know dumb ass “` I am a straight woman, married “ with 4 children that I would 100% support if any of them were les/gay!! So there!!



  62. 62

    Re: URwhatUeat – you have no heart.



  63. 63

    Why is there a "get the look" window on this? In case I want the look the kid was wearing in the pictures? Selling the look! That is in extremely bad taste! Good God, you are beyond clueless.



  64. 64

    19? That's an adult.



  65. 65

    I wonder how many times Lindsay Lohan snorted coke over some of the mean vile awful things you've said about her, Perez. You want to lecture us on bullying but that is what YOU do everyday on this blog. You are full of it! For the record (since you're so dumb) not every gay kid commits suicide from being bully. It could be a number of reasons. Suicide is horrible and the fact you are using these poor boys' deaths to get hits on your blog makes you disgusting!



  66. 66

    Yes suicide is horrible and teen suicide doubly so but what makes these so sad and what is Perez's point is these were most likely preventable. A little tolerance and compassion can go a long way.



  67. 67

    Hey Pig Nose
    You bully people every day.
    You change first and maybe we'll all follow!!



  68. 68

    my heart goes out to these boys families.
    - to everyone wondering why Perez is foucing on gay guys as opposed to girls, well, statistics show that (whether gay or straight) girls will attempt suicide more but guys are more successful at actually killing themselves.
    Perez, i applaud your focus on Gay Rights (I'm Canadian, and luckily for many of my gay friends, they can get married or whatever without hassle, although there is still prejudice here too which makes me sick) Suicide is a hard thing to comprehend. I believe you should probably focus on it not just in the gay, bi, trans, community but as a whole.



  69. 69

    thats bs. he isnt being biased, these kids are killing themselves because they are being bullied and cant handle it and feel they should kill themselves to end it. it obviously isnt the answer, but its douches who think being gay is wrong that is leading them to this. you dont choose who you want to love. get over it, you cant be "fixed". what have any gay, bisexual, or transgender done to anyone? im positive its people who are anti gay that are the ones causing all the drama. get over. and for you who leave comments saying "oh perez why do youi do this?" stop reading his blog if it pisses you off, you obviously care if you have the need to comment on it. if you dont like it, dont read it. its as simple as that. and yes people die every minute but these KIDS are killing themselves because people are punishing them for being human. being gay, transgender, or bisexual doesnt matter, you are still a human and no one deserves to be treated like that.



  70. 70

    How dare any of you say "stop being biased" and That they "are weak and should kill themselves" When you say these things they hurt the people that loved and knew him! Have a fucking heart you scumbags! I would never come up to you and say "oh your mom dad brother or sister just commited suicide… oh stop being biased and grow up or go kill yourself"



  71. 71

    I hate to sound hateful, because this is truly horrible, but obviously there is deeper issue's than them merely being gay.



  72. 72

    Re: supmagooch – yeah its definitely bigger than just the gay teenage community…



  73. 73

    This is bs. He is not being biased for one. Yes, people do die every minute, but KIDS committing suicide because they are being punished for being human is unnacceptable. It doesnt matter if you are gay, bi, or transgender, you are still human and should be treated like one no matter what. you cant control who you love or who you are. you can change but you are still the same person. why should someone have to be "fixed". that is such a load of crap. the people who need to be fixed are the ones who cant accept a girl likes a girl, or a guy likes a guy. seriously the ones who cause all this shit is are the ones who bully someone about it, gays arent doing anything but some how people feel they have the right to put someone down for being diffrent. thats someones brother, uncle, aunt, sister, cousin, etc. why put their family through something so tragic. leave gays alone, they are PEOPLE! And for the people that say "oh perez why can you say this but say mean things about celebs?" well if it bothers you dont read his website anymore he isnt making you read it, but you choose to read what he posts. NO ONE should have to feel they need to end their life for being diffrent and people need to change and stop bullying people for being diffrent. everyone deserves to be treated with respect.



  74. 74

    Re: PigggyHilton – hey why don't you actually be a leader instead of a follower!!



  75. 75

    this is very sad and it happens often but if you really care so much why dont you let them email you or call



  76. 76

    BY THE WAY, RIP beautiful boys



  77. 77

    Um hello, fat people commit suicide, black people commit suicide, straight people commit suicide, drug addicts commit suicide, muslims commit suicide, girls commit suicide, Catholics commit suicide, mentally ill people commit suicide, Asian people commit suicide. As a gay person I am glad your handing up for our rights but only reporting on gay suicides you make us look weak.



  78. 78

    Re: ScottWarner – One of the most ignorant countries? WE are the ones people come to when they are being racially, religiously, you name it, persecuted in their own countries. In fact, the first Americans to land here were from Britain and their religious beliefs were outcasting them. We are probably the most diverse and accepting country in the world and you call us IGNORANT?



  79. 79

    Re: mnlesniak – It honestly doesnt have anythinq to do with beinq "weak" .. cause when someones qoinq throuqh so fuckinq much .. they feel that their only way to get away from it is to GET OUT OF IT by any means and more than half the time, they arent tryinq to actually commit the act of… but it cant be reversed once its done obviously. The thought is never to "kill yourself" its to RID YOURSELF OF PAIN. and thats happend in THIS case with MY FRIEND. He's aand was NEVER and still WONT BE weak even though he passed. You have to knoe someeone and their situations to understand them instead of undermining the person as a wholee.. so .. yeaa… Not weak. Its called stress and moree.. beinq at your lowest point and havinq a feelinq that nothinq is qonna qet better because fcuked up shit has been happeninq for a while! Thats what that's about. SMH! AND BTW; DIDNT LIKE YOUR POST/COMMENT WHATEVER. IT HAPPENED BY AN ACCIDENT. TRUST ME!



  80. 80

    Of[re=5367758]Re: mnlesniak[/re. First of all raymond was a very strong person he was a beautiful person inside and out and I. Stand in his defense against all you negative assholes because I'm his older cousin!! Its the world that's weak and not strong enough to accept ppl for who they are. Most ppl are inhumane and and they don't know who they are yet and have to target the ones who know who they are and love themselves! With that said have some fucking respect for my family when you leave comments like this under a article of a tragedy that shouldn't have happened! Smh I love you ray aka stormy you will be missed more then words can say your smile your jokes your hot ass dances! You didn't have to leave us but now ur with the angels and away from the crueld world and you can now rest in. Peace love your cousin connie



  81. 81

    Re: URwhatUeat – you really dont know how to choose your words correctly. Like i said to this other onee. you cant judqe noone when you dont know them nor the situation that led up to what the fuck is beinq read. But i can put my life on it that Ray's not in HELL. far from such. My love is in paradiseee! he was a GREAT PERSON, and had u known him; this bullshit wouldnt be coming from you and on here. thats not something thats gonna be taken lightly; and your very fuckin cold hearted. I have no doubt that your going to hell! smfh! SLEEP IN PEACE RAY. We love you



  82. 82

    this is completely heart-wrenching. i dont know why this is all happening at once, but this needs to stop! your lives are way more important than some dumb bullies mean words! IT GETS BETTER!!! talk to someone, ANYONE… anything is better than taking you're own life.



  83. 83

    it's cool gay people are commiting suicide.. when will you learm mario.. i hope your name is in a headline soon



  84. 84

    listen im saddened by the fact that someone has committed suicide but its not just for gays its for everyone - gay or straight. this is not news. but the fact of the matter is you are making an assumption that its because they are facing pressures directly related to them being homosexual. there could be another factor that could be a direct cause of the suicide not related to their homosexuality.



  85. 85

    I never comment on here anymore, and I am sure most readers can guess why. People used to talk here, now it's just nasty comments and stupid attempts at jokes.
    Listen, forget all that.
    When people make fun of those who are in despair, or those in pain, it says more about them than it does about the person they're making fun of.
    If you think that there is no hope, try, for just one more day to listen to me.
    There is always hope. There is nothing in this world that is unbearable. There are millions of people who have survived the worst things imaginable, and they have gone on to have better days.
    Please talk to someone, anyone. A good person is your family doctor, or a public health nurse, they can help you. A police officer can help you. I wish I could say all clergy would help you, but we all know that isn't true. There are those who will, try the Unitarians, they will help you. (No, I'm not even a Unitarian, they're just not judgmental and full of the sin of pride.) I don't give a flying fuck if someone is gay, straight, white, black, brown or fucking multicoloured with tentacles from Mars. Nobody is worthless because of the way that they are born. If you don't like the way someone is made, then take it up with the Maker.

    Re: JoeDawg – what u just wrote is something i have been saying for ages. gays like perez really give other gays a bad name, not to mention that he is a horrible role model, that is if he can even be called that. when young gay people or any gay people see someone like perez it could very well make them be ashamed to be gay. perez contributes to gay teen suicide and he doesnt even know it. sad thing is, perez doesnt and never will get it. he is an enemy to gays.

    America in crisis??? Oh my effen GEEE! Seriously, this website has become 30% celebrity news and 70% homosexual-related everything news! Perez is so damn bias, contradicts himself ALL the time and a complete idiot. Hmmm…which other celeb news website can I go to, because Perezhilton.com has become the old haggard hasbeen its creator is. Blah.



  88. 88

    Now teen suicide needs to triple..Considering those are the MORONS that will be running this country. Cya idiotic teens go kill yourselves some more.



  89. 89

    I can't believe that people are commenting that Perez should be worried about all people that are committing suicide and not just the gay ones. Why is it so wrong to examine a certain segment of the population? Is it wrong for Oprah to open a school for young black women? Should she just open a school for all women? Why can't a celebrity reporter report on the news that is important to him? When I am on Perez' page I am aware that I am not on CNN's page.

    As a student at Johnson & Wales, I did not know Ray personally, but I have many friends who did. I've always been a supporter of gay rights, however, I think there are better ways to get your point across without exploiting the deaths involved in these tragedies. Family and friends have not even had time to cope with Ray's death, and already, it's being exploited on a gossip-driven blog. No offense to Perez, as I've always loved reading about the gossip and drama from Hollywood, but this is real life.



  91. 91

    Ray never chose the life of fame, and therefore, his family and friends should not have to go through this. At least not so soon. Have a little respect. Let those affected by this have their time to cope and rest before having to read about it in such a way. It has not even been openly confirmed or denied that Ray committed suicide as a result of his sexuality, and therefore, his death may not even have anything to do with the cause you are supporting.

    Obviously, it's a pivotal time in American history, this generation. Like any major rights movement in the past, things always get worse before they get better and unfortunately, I feel as though this is what we're experiencing now. I'm afraid to see how much worse this gets before we see a change in our country. I'm hoping that people don't start taking on the role of a martyr, and killing themselves not because they want to, but to prove a point. I respect those who stand up for what they believe in, but it should never have to reach that point.



  93. 93

    Why are so many of you so upset because he's reporting news about gays committing suicide? It's not that he DOESN'T care about hetero suicides, but he's obviously showing his concern towards gay people who are committing suicide because they are being BULLIED/HARASSED for being gay. Like someone said earlier, you don't see straight people being bullied for being heterosexual. Since Perez is obviously comfortable with his sexuality, does it really surprise you how all of these recent deaths would bother him? Oh, and why complain that he's reporting a lot of gay-related news lately? That's like complaining about Espn.com for reporting too much about sports…

    Eldridge Cleaver's top 10 tips to become a cyber bully like Perez Hilton
    1. Trash people today whose ass you kissed yesterday
    2. Draw hearts on dudes' crotches and draw cum on chicks' faces
    3. Speculate and insinuate that Kristen Stewart is a lesbian
    4. Nickname a 15 year old girl Slutty Cyrus
    5. Fawn over young boys half your age that have odd tics shaking their head
    6. Make fun of Ali Lohan's eyebrows as much as possible
    7. Talk mad shit on very sick celebrities then say "Sad.Sad" when they OD.
    Editor's note: RIP Brittany Murphy
    8. Try to "out" as many celebrities as possible
    9. Make fun of women for their clothes and weight
    10. For all posts on Matt Bomer make sure to write "the openly gay actor" and don't forget to draw the aforementioned heart on his crotch.
    On a serious note, if you're depressed or feeling suicidal please talk to someone about it. There is light at the end of the tunnel :)

    I cannot believe some of the comments about this information. Appalling. az00000 - shame on you. You obviously don't have children of your own, or you couldn't possibly take this so lightly or make such comments. I'm betting you are very young and not worldly. So I forgive you. Our children are often not what we "wish" they'd be. But they are still our children. You are such a bigot (which equals narrow minded and ignorant). Teens face a multitude of obstacles, gay or not. This is just one segment of the teen suicides. One that would probably not draw much attention if they weren't mentioned here. So thank goodness Perez has an agenda in mentioning just them. God bless them and may they rest in peace. Peace they couldn't find here.



  96. 96

    Just because Perez's post is saying something needs to be done about suicide in the gay community doesn't mean people need to freak out about him not talking about suicides in general. We all know Perez is homosexual so it makes sense that he would talk about something that hits home, thats close to his heart. These suicides about gay teens have been in the news the past couple of days so again it makes sense why that is the main focus right now.

    Change starts at home, start with the things that are close to your heart, start with the causes that touch home with you, nothing can be done in one day, it will take time. I'm sure there are plenty of advocates out there who only talk about bullying and suicides for a certain race or a certain gender, because that's what they know and thats where they come from. Duh.

    Wow this is sad. Something weird is going on here. I hope this isn't all fake stories just to get gay ppl legal to marry or whatnot. I mean I can't help it's 2010 and ppl are still against one another and are as sexist, racist and homophobic and the ppl that run this world have us so turned against each other we are not only in war with countries we are at war with religion and what sex u prefer or what u look like its REALLLLY scary and sad.
    RIP to all the ppl that die today, tomorrow and everyday for the rest of our lives because of hate and ignorance. No one should feel left out or want to die coz they are gay this is alarming.

    THE ONLY THING THAT CAN STOP THIS IS STUDY OF AND STRICT ADHERENCE TO BIBLICAL TEACHINGS. IF THESE KIDS WERENT COMMITTING HOMOSEXUAL SIN THEY WOULDNT HAVE KILLED THEMSELVES
