One teen in St. Chatherines, Ontario had to fight his school administration to be allowed to write a positive gay message in his yearbook profile.
Blair Gaboury, a gay student at Dean Morris High School, wanted to write a simple message to his fellow students:
"It's brighter outside of the closet."
The 17-year-old anonymously delivered the message after it was flagged by a teacher who wanted the school administration to review it.
After owning up to the comment, the teen said that it was rejected by two vice-principals who deemed the message unacceptable and controversial! Over that weekend, Gaboury took to social media to voice his frustrations:
The Niagara Catholic School Board can sugar coat it all they want… But the fact is they promote DISCRIMINATION

He even scribed a letter to Ellen Degeneres in hopes of his story being heard, writing about his meeting with school officials:
Super sad news…
Dai-Jon Parker, a former basketball player at Vanderbilt University, died suddenly on Thursday in Indiana.
According to reports, the 22-year-old athlete was inner-tubing behind a boat in the Morse Reservoir near Indianapolis, when he was thrown off the tube without a life jacket, and drowned. His body was located with sonar nearly two hours after disappearing underwater.
Vanderbilt's basketball coach, Kevin Stallings, said:
"We are extremely saddened with the news of Dai-Jon's death. Everyone who watched him play basketball knew what kind of athlete he was. But, to those of us who knew him and loved him, he was as good and happy of a person as you would ever meet. He always had a smile on his face and I will always remember him for that smile and the positive spirit he had. We send our deepest condolences and prayers to his family, friends, and others who were lucky enough to have met him. The Vanderbilt basketball family will miss him."
Parker, a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was a three-year player at Vandy, playing in 92 career games.
For his senior season, he transferred to the University of Indianapolis.
Our thoughts are with all of Parker's friends and family.

If you're upset by the news that former Bachelor couple Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff broke off their engagement, you're not the only one!
While series host Chris Harrison doesn't seem super heartbroken about yet another failed couple
produced arranged engaged by the ABC series, he admits he finds it "sad" the two couldn't make it work.
The 43-year-old sat down with Hallmark's Home & Family co-hosts Mark and Christina to promote his new romance novel, but also took time to mourn the loss of the reality TV couple's engagement.
Apparently, Harrison thought the two would defy odds and make it work, saying:
Actor and comedian Reynaldo Rey died at age 75 in Los Angeles on Thursday.
According to Reynaldo's manager, the actor passed away due to complications with a stroke he suffered near the end of last year.
Reynaldo was known for his performances in 1992's White Men Can't Jump and 1995's Friday, but hadn't starred in any TV shows or films since 2008 when he switched over to producing his own albums and plays.
Reynaldo had been in a Los Angeles hospital since January to get treatment, but, thankfully, his wife was by his side when he died in the early morning.
Rest in peace, Reynaldo.

Bobby Brown is not ready let go — and he might never be!
Over Memorial Day weekend, it was rumored that Bobby was planning to take his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown off life support.
But it seems that is not the case!
When the family received hundreds of supportive messages on social media — they were quick to deny the reports that they were taking Whitney Houston's daughter off her ventilator.
A source revealed:
"Bobby hears these reports, and it's annoying to him. He hates that people are just waiting for his daughter to die."
It's been four months since the icon's daughter was found unresponsive in a bathtub and placed on life support.
Despite the fact that Bobbi Kristina's condition has remained unchanged and that grandmother, Cissy Houston, has shared that there is little hope for recovery — the Every Little Step singer is vehement that he will NOT turn of his daughter's machines.
The source continued:
"Let me tell you this now. Don't believe any reports that Bobby is going to take her off life support. He's never going to do that. I don't think he'll ever go there; if there's a 2 percent chance, a 1 percent chance, a 0.1 percent chance, he will keep hope alive."
The family reportedly visits the 22-year-old everyday to pray for Bobbi Kris.
We continue to keep her family in our thoughts.
