antigay-teen

A Queerty reader has directed us to a video of a teen expressing his severe homophobia, and we feel it deserves to be seen. We must warn you that he uses highly offensive language, and if you’re sensitive to hate speech, you may want to move on. While antigay hostility on high school campuses (or anywhere else for that matter) isn’t much by the way of news, the willingness of bigots to wear their ignorance on their sleeves has become noticeably more...

At 14, Kaodimuo was promised a football career in India, but it turned out he had been sold as a slave, The Swedish Federation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Rights said. ‘Several’ of the young man’s friends, who also came to India from Nigeria, died because...

Republican Lawmaker

“I shouldn’t have done it,” Republican Mike Yenni tells his local Fox 8 news station, “being a married man, being a father, and being an elected official.” He is, of course, referring to the sext scandal involving himself and a Catholic school boy that made international headlines earlier this year. 40-year-old Yenni is the President of Jefferson Parish in Louisiana. Back in September, he was outed for sending some pretty racy text messages to a 17-year-old high school senior who he may or may...

"I'm talking, because I know it's the right thing to do." It’s a sad fact that male rape is one of the UK’s most under-reported crimes, and one that remains shrouded in stigma and secrecy. Now, one teenager has decided to cut through the silence and share his own story and shed light on the still-taboo subject of male sexual abuse. Dean Eastmond was just 16 years old and still in the closet when he was raped by someone he knew well and considered...

A gay teen is suing his former high school after its refusal to let him bring a date to homecoming. Lance Sanderson has launched legal action against Christian Brothers High School (CBHS) in Memphis, Tennessee. In his lawsuit, the 19-year-old argues that the all-boys private school violated anti-discrimination laws when he was denied permission to bring a boy to homecoming prom last year. Despite straight students being allowed to bring girls from other schools, Mr Sanderson was told the school would not...

According to The Times, a 19-year-old student had every intention of carrying out a nail bomb attack in Britain, specifically targeting a September 11th Elton John concert. He’s also accused of planning coordinated attacks on Buckingham Palace, Oxford Street, and various military bases throughout London. Haroon Ali-Syed allegedly wanted to use a bomb with a remote timer in order to blow up a particularly crowded area of central London. However, his plans were thwarted when he contacted an undercover police officer online....
iran-hanging

Iran is violating international law by regularly putting juveniles to death. Iran recently executed a gay teen, reminding the world that it still regularly kills minors no matter what international law says. Amnesty International this week decried the hanging of gay Iranian teenager, Hassan Afshar, as proof of the country’s “sickening enthusiasm for putting juveniles to death” and as a “contravention of international law” that “knows no bounds.” Putting to death any juvenile violates United Nations covenants. Still, Iran hasn’t shied...

Myren is a high-school student who, despite his parents' disapproval, he took his boyfriend to the prom. And that was the best decision he'd ever made. No one supported him, but Myren posted photos from the prom alongside his boyfriend, and he got a lot of support from social media. https://twitter.com/myrenthapimp/status/734062914987040770 “They wanted me to end things with him and they tried grounding me to keep us from talking, but no matter what we found a way to talk,” the 17-year-old said. “My...
Connor Jessup

Connor Jessup portrays a messed up gay teenager in American Crime and a closeted senior in Closet Monster. While his gay character in Closet Monster has a milder personality, In American Crime is quite complicated. Jessup was asked about playing a gay teenager that seems to be a villain. He said that usually gay characters are depicted in a positive way as real life is crowded with negative commentaries towards the gay community. "There are quite a few gay characters on...

But before the preformance, the teenager confessed that he is bullied at school for his love to ballet: “People was calling me names.
