Daughter_Hangs

RIP Julia Derbyshire A 16-year-old was repeatedly bullied online over her sexuality before she killed herself, her father has said. Julia Derbyshire was 12 years old when she said to her friend: ‘I’m not sure yet but I think I like girls.’ Her ‘friend’ then spread her feelings around school, and Julia was subjected to vile bullying. Four years later she hanged herself. Adrian Derbyshire, 42, has released photos of his daughter on a ventilator in hospital to raise awareness of playground and online bullying. ‘She...
Russell Tovey

Stop what you’re doing — Russell Tovey is upset. Last year, the actor ruffled feathers by saying he was grateful for all the childhood bullying that cured him of being “really effeminate.” Well, now he’s a year older and perhaps wiser. Or perhaps not. In a new interview with Attitude, he says he “never meant to upset anyone.” Things come out the way you don’t intend them to. It was a very upsetting time for me. … I learned from it and I’ve grown from it....
Tyrone-and-mum

A gay 13-year-old has taken his own life after enduring years of homophobic bullying, both physical and emotional. Tyrone Unsworth of Brisbane, took his own life, his mother said, and that he had suffered through two years of homophobic abuse which pushed him “to the edge”. Among other insults and physical abuse, Unsworth was called a “fairy” and a “gay boy”. She told the Courier Mail: “He was a really feminine male, he loved fashion, he loved make-up and the boys always...

Ben Smith will have run 10,500 miles – the equivalent distance between London and Sydney. A 34 year old equality campaigner will finally head home next to finish his 401st marathon in 401 days. Ben Smith says he has made the epic journey in a bid to raise awareness for young people who are bullied and targeted specifically for being LGBT. He came up with the idea after years of homophobic abuse at school, which resulted in two suicide attempts. The campaigner also...

Finding Prince Charming’s lead man Robert Sepulveda Jr. has lashed out at critics he says have targeted him with “harassment” following revelations that he worked as an escort and appeared in an explicit video. The 33-year-old interior designer has faced intense scrutiny around his personal after in recent weeks, both from the media and show contestants. One show contestant, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to The Wrap last week, accused Logo of intentionally casting the former sex worker with the hopes...
ballet

This 14-year-old teen guy, Jack Higgins, gave a perfect ballet performance on Britain’s Got Talent Show. But before the preformance, the teenager confessed that he is bullied at school for his love to ballet: “People was calling me names. Getting bullied, saying I was gay and I danced like a girl and ballet was for girls.” But after he danced on the stage of Talent show to Great Big World’s supper emosh ballad, “Say Something (I’m Giving Up on You),” the judge of the...
gay teenagers

It is a sad fact that a lot of the teenagers get depressive when identifying themselves as gays and more often than not, their suffering is ignored by those around them. Several years ago depression was not even considered a real affection and patients were not able to receive medical treatment. Now we know how it works and how to treat it, but it is still a big issue for a lot of people. Especially when talking about LGBT...
Noparuj Kaendi and Thorsten Mid

Last April, Noparuj Kaendi and Thorsten Mid found themselves at the center of a storm of online trolling when photos of them holding hands on the Bangkok Sky Train were posted up on Facebook. The pair didn't take the photos themselves - instead they were taken surreptitiously by another passenger - but the couple soon faced a barrage of racist and homophobic comments. We won't repeat those comments here (there's no point in fueling the fire of people who get...

In Scotland, we use the word 'jessy' as an insult. Urban dictionary describes it as follows: "Scottish/Northern English phrase to suggest someone is a coward. (your mate wont ask a girl out) "aww come on, stop being a Jessy" (someone runs away from a fight with you) "Haha, ya big Jessy"" It's also an insult thrown at many gay guys when they're young. We're seen as weak, ineffectual, unable to stand up for ourselves. Is this true? Is it something inherent in the...
