LGBT Month | A Happy Life

October is LGBT month (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender). At my university there are events set up for that group. I am happy that it’s recognized and is a big deal around campus. I came across an article in the New York Times called “Showing Gay Teenagers a Happy Future“. It fits in perfect for LGBT month. The article talks about a video that reaches out to gay teens and being bullied. Being bullied in general is just horrible and to hear about gay people being bullied just for their sexual orientation is just horrible. The video was made by an activist Dan Savage. He was moved by a story where a student committed suicide because he was bullied. He then decided to make the video to let victims of being bullied share their stories. Dan is just trying to help teens who have been bullied and letting them share their stories on YouTube which is a great idea.
