Message to gay youth: It gets better…

R.I.P. – In memory of the recent suicides due to gay abuse, wear purple

 

 

Billy Lucas (above), a 15-year-old freshman, hung himself after classmates called him a ‘Fag’ one too many times

 

Tomorrow, October 20, 2010, we will wear purple in honor of the 6 gay boys who committed suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse in their homes and at their schools. Purple represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality. Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and schools. RIP Tyler Clementi, Asher Brown, Seth Walsh, Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase and Billy Lucas. You are loved.

 

Join this event and invite everyone on your friends list. Don’t let their deaths be for nothing. Let it mean something, and let’s do something to change this country for once.

 

Chris Colfer from Glee — It get’s better!
