GAY TEEN COMMITS SUICIDE
I am very sad to report that tragically, another gay teenager has taken his life because of homophobia. 16-year old Brandon Elizares from El Paso, Texas was found dead by his family on June 02, 2012. According to the family, peers have threatened to stab and light Brandon on fire simply because he was homosexual. The mother of this young man says next week, students planned to beat up the teen.
It is such a shame to see another life cut short because of this ignorance! When will people learn? When will people finally stop the hate? The LGBT community is in mourning today after the loss of another bright young man.
