LGBT Bullying and Suicide
Hosted by ABC7's Cheryl Jennings
Today we are talking about a disturbing trend that has recently made a lot of headlines: The bullying and subsequent suicides of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth.
We'll hear from a California mother who lost a child. We'll also be joined by a State Superintendent of Public Instruction-Elect, Tom Torlakson. You'll hear a first-hand account of what it is like to be bullied, and we'll learn about some resources that are out there for those affected.
