I come from a small town, mostly farm country so there are allot of guys at our school who like to believe they are tough and well don't take so well to gays/lesbians or bi. My best friend is gay and he is the sweetest most kind guy I have ever met, its hard for me to believe he can be hated but he is and it kills me to watch what happens when he goes to school. He is picked on constantly because he chooses to like men, he has been called horrible names, he has had his stuff stolen as a joke. I try and do what I can but it's hard when me and him only share one class. We have been too the school and they sometimes brush it off like its nothing, he texts me each night and tells me how hurt he is and how he wish he didn't have to go to school. It breaks my heart! he is special to me, like a brother and I wish it would all stop. He has attempted suicide once, thank god his father caught him....I really want to prevent it from happening again. He disserves to live he's a great person and I wish people could see that and look past who he chooses to love.
