I grew up in communities where my fellow students openly bragged, not only about bullying, but bashing gays. They bragged, and no one said anything.

I grew up walking my more visibly queer friends to school and back so that I could deflect some of the verbal and physical bullying they encountered almost daily.

Two decades later, hundreds of marches around the world, total penetration into the commercial cultural market place, and still, in the past month or so, four young gay people have been bullied, driven to suicide and/or bashed.

End the bullying of young queers. End bullying.

If you see something, say something.

Even in the Facebook tribute page of Tyler Clementi there is hate (thanks to moderators for deleting those…)

Zero tolerance for bigots or bullies. ZERO.

Or, as they say, give a damn.
