(hyperlink) Throughout my very long academic career being in the halls of different schools throughout the state I have noticed the LGBT kids in them. I became aware of the LGBT people at the start of my high school days, and all the way up to now I have always supported the LGBT community. I have met people of the LGBT community through my sister and my girlfriend. They always treat me with respect and now I would call them my friends. Why should I treat them any differently just because of their sexual orientation? I do know that the people of the LGBT community all of the world get bullied just because of who they are. Its outrageous that they get bullied just because of that. If people actually sat down with them, and got to know them they would realize that they are no different. It kills me to know that some are driven to suicide by bullies. As the text says "death should never be an option"(Intro) and its sad because those people had a chance. I know what it is like to feel hopeless, fear, and anxiety in life but you have to remember you are never alone. No matter what you are going through, you have to never give up. Just think of the people you love and just keep your head high. We are starting to make cracks in the glass for equality for all.
This is a short video on LGBT bullying awareness. It gives incite on how we need to work together to stop the bullying.



  1. I as well wasn't introduced to the LGBT community until high school as well. And same here, i think death should never be an option for someone being bullied.

  2. I completely agree with you that just because they are apart of the LGBT community it doesn't mean that they are any different from you or I. The fact that people of this community are getting bullied for being who they are is just heartbreaking and is something I feel is something worth standing up for. I have family members who are apart of this community and I cannot imagine them being bullied for who they are or how they feel when it comes to love or sexuality.
