Inspiring High School Senior Comes Out To Her Peers During Assembly!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspiration

Words cannot do justice to just how awesome this girl is.

Check out this truly inspirational speech from a High School senior named Kayla K., who bravely and articulately announced that she is a lesbian to her classmates during an assembly in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.

We cannot imagine how difficult this must have been for her, which is why her courage and conviction needs to not only be applauded, but also shared with as many people as possible!

These words not only need to be heard, but understood and ACCEPTED, because it's the fact-of-the-matter truth in every single way!

Bravo, bb! The LGBT community is lucky to have you.

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!!

This issue still clearly needs our attention, as a country, more than ever!

18-year-old Minnesota teenager Lance Lundsten commit suicide over the weekend, having said to be openly gay and the victim of relentless bullying by his peers at Jefferson High School.

Authorities responded to an emergency call at Lundsten's house last night, where the teen was discovered. He was transported to a local hospital, and pronounced dead later on that evening.

Unbelievably heartbreaking - especially from someone so close to graduating high school. Our thoughts our with Lance's family and loved ones during this incredibly difficult time.

No more senseless deaths! It's so important that we try and be more positive in all aspects of our life - ESPECIALLY in how we relate to others!

Love is louder!!

Parents Of Deceased Gay Teen To Sue Rutgers Over Suicide

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersSad Sad

tyler clementis parents to sue rutgers

As a result of the suicide of gay Rutgers University freshman Tyler Clementi, the state of New Jersey passed the "Anti-Bullying Bill Of Rights."

Despite this, Clementi's parents are planning on suing the University, although Rutgers claims that his death is not their responsibility.

According to a notice from Clementi's parents' lawyer, Rutgers failed to protect Tyler from "unlawful or otherwise improper acts" by two of his classmates, who spurred his decision to jump off the George Washington Bridge after they broadcast a video of him having sex over the Internet.

Damages that Clementi's parents are listing in the suit include pain and suffering, loss of companionship and support, and financial costs.

Here's what Rutgers spokesman E.J. Miranda had to say about the situation:

"We at the university share the family's sense of loss of their son, who was a member of our community. We also recognize that a grieving family may question whether someone or some institution could somehow have responsibility for their son's death. While the university understands this reaction, the university is not responsible for Tyler Clementi's suicide."

According to a statement made by Clementi's family, "a decision as to whether to file suit against Rutgers University in the future has not been made."

Guess we'll see what the family decides to do.

This is an awful situation, and it continues to upset us that this happened in the first place.

We hope the Clementi family is able to find peace over time, one way or another.

Josh Duhamel Says "It Gets Better"

Filed under: Gay Gay GayJosh Duhamel


Check out the video (above) of Josh Duhamel speaking out against bullying during an interview at a Trevor Project benefit.

Duhamel's been a source of drama lately with his inappropriate airplane-related behavior, so he was probs happy to get an opportunity to "change the subject."

We appreciate him taking the time out to speak up about this important topic, but admittedly out of all the videos we've seen, we wouldn't say this is the most heartfelt one out there.

As far as Duhamel's comments about blackberry dramz on the airplane are concerned…we just hope he's learned his lesson and he'll behave better on airplanes and in general in the future!
