Open Forum: Time for petty discrimination to end
It’s estimated that a GLBTQ youth is three to seven times more likely to commit suicide. A large reason for this is the harsh bullying that occurs far too often, especially in schools.

Speaking from my own personal experience, when I was going through school kids apparently knew I was gay before I even did.
