It’s been decided. On October 20th, 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 at 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, Seth Walsh (top)
RIP Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase (middle)
RIP Asher Brown and Billy Lucas. (bottom)

REBLOG to spread a message of love, unity and peace.

This just makes me so sad and sick to my stomach...

I had knew about the two boys but didn't realize there were six boys. I heard a little about Justin Aaberg on Midnight Whispers... This just brings tears to my eyes and makes me ask what can we do?

Yes!!! We!!! We are the logical community to come out and support them. I heard on Rachel Maddow last week that what is lacking is a support system to help gay youth. As much as we have advanced legislation towards gay rights, we need to make sure that the young are protected and understood...

I know I'm ranting, but if not me, who???

Tell me about it.

It's really sad that young boys and girls have no real support and decide to take their lives. :((
