At the very least, you’ll wanna be around to see what Venus Williams will wear at the US Open next year!

But seriously, a lot of us have been through this. I know plenty of people who’ve felt ridiculed, shunned, bullied, and tormented for being gay — and felt like they had no other choice but to end their lives. It’s a tough situation to be in, but you really have to believe that things will get better. And like Ellen says, there’s help out there.

Resources: At least for LGBTQ youth who feel like they’ve got nowhere to turn, you can check out these orgs.

[…Which makes me wonder what we have in place for older people who are dealing with coming out (like, anyone older than a teenager all the way through the 65+ set) . I’m not saying there’s nothing out there; I just realized I don’t know who/what those services are. If you know of any, I’m all ears!]

    Very sad to see so many young people taking their lives as a result of their sexuality…. why do people bully others? And, why is anyone’s sexuality anyone else’s business? RIP, Tyler Clementi
