A 19-year-old Oakland University student took his own life on campus Tuesday.OU police said the death of sophomore Corey Jackson from Warren is still under investigation.The Oakland County medical examiner’s office confirmed that Jackson’s death had been ruled a suicide.”Any death in the campus community diminishes us all. We know there will be no quick antidote for the pain that Corey’s sudden death has caused, and that only time can heal the sorrow felt by his family and friends,” said Oakland University President Gary Russi in an e-mail to students. “In our mourning, I am hopeful that we will not focus on the manner of Corey’s death, but rather celebrate the life he lived and the people he touched.”
Jackson’s family said he recently revealed to them that he was a homosexual, and that they believe he was bullied over his sexual orientation. They think the bullying led him to commit suicide.

No more. This is what today was about - bringing attention to what happened before he ended his life.

Two lesbian youth found dead in Orangeville - Latest News Roundup

gregoryythomas:

The bodies of girlfriends Jeanine Blanchette, 21, and Chantal Dube, 17, were found in a wooded area in Orangeville on Saturday. 

After ruling out foul play and a connection to a high-profile murder in September, police are investigating the possibility of a double suicide, reports CTV (watch the video for more details).

The Toronto Star has more:

The tragic story began on Tuesday [Sept 28] when two friends received “goodbye” phone calls from Jeanine and Chantal and reported them to police. The young women also left behind goodbye letters to family members.

Jeanine’s mother Ellen Blanchette said the police responded quickly that day, but then didn’t take their concerns seriously as the week progressed. Instead, Ellen said, Orangeville police and OPP seemed to think the young women had run away.

On Sept 29, Jeanine’s mother drove to her daughter’s apartment, where she found receipts for hundreds of antipsychotic pills, reportsThe Star.

Discussion about queer youth suicide has swelled in recent weeks, in the wake of six reported cases in the United States. Determined to reach out, columnist Dan Savage has created a viral video campaignto let queer youth know that it gets better.

omfg. this is horrible.

Goddamn. Please. It gets better. It really does. Please believe it does. No more.

An eighth grader in the Houston area, Asher Brown, has committed suicide after being relentlessly bullied at school for being gay.
A US college student committed suicide the day after authorities say two fellow students surreptitiously recorded him having sex with a man in his dorm room and broadcast it over the internet. Tyler Clementi of New Jersey jumped off the George Washington Bridge, a lawyer for his family said. His body hasn’t been recovered.
Seth Walsh, a student at Jacobsen Middle School in Tehachapi, Calif., was found unconscious and not breathing on Sept. 19 after he apparently tried to hang himself from a tree in his backyard, according to a police report obtained by The Bakersfield Californian. Friends said that Seth had been picked on for years because he was gay. He later passed away.
This has to stop.

 Dear Anonymous Christian below,
THIS IS WHY I FUCKING POST ALL THAT GAY STUFF! Your hatred has real-life consequences. Look into the eyes of each person above for just a moment and remember, this person is DEAD. Fin. No more. All because of hatred.
This could be here, this could be anywhere…. No more.
Sincerely,
Meg
