My heart goes out to Chloe's family and friends. Having been a gay kid who thought a lot about suicide (OK... that was a LONG time ago!) I take these stories very personally, with tears of sorrow and anger.
Another GLBT kid..... damn, damn, damn.... And there's no record here of bullying, so while that is a very real problem it's wrong to focus entirely on bullying. We need to be aware of homo-, bi-, and transphobia as they permeate society. We need to be attentive and supportive to GLBT youth and make resources universally accessible in ALL schools, in ALL classes. F*** people who are "offended" at hearing about us being equal as human beings. Any sane person should be more offended that children are dying of hatred.
