An oldie but a goodie

This post is in memory of all the LGBT teens out there who have taken their lives because of bullying and harassment.

 

“This story is for the young people who might be holding the gun tonight or the rope or the pill bottle. … Please stick around to make those happy memories for yourself. It may not seem like it tonight, but they will. And the attitudes of society will change. Please live long enough to be there to see it.” – Joel Burns

Stand Against, not for, Homophobic Bullying

Here’s a video created by “BeLonG To Youth Services”.

 

BeLonG To is a national youth service for Lesbian Gay Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) young people in Ireland. We believe that LGBT young people need to be respected and cared for on the same basis as all other young people, and that when they are safe and supported in their families, schools & society they will thrive as healthy and equal citizens.
