Another Gay Teen Suicide; This Time From Norman, Oklahoma

11 Oct

According to the Norman Transcript, a gay teenager committed suicide just a week after the Norman City Council passed a progressive resolution which recognizes the month of October as LGBT History Month.  It is being suggested that the bitter and often homophobic statements voiced by members of the public in opposition to the resolution during the three-hour session was the cause for the nineteen year old who attended the council meeting to take his own life .
