Jamie Hubley, a gay 15-year-old from Canada, committed suicide over the weekend after incessant bullying at school.
Hubley posted on Tumblr about his depression, his issues with cutting, how he was seeking professional help and taking antidepressants, and the horrible things people said to him at school. He said the modern slogan “It Gets Better” is “f*cking bullshit” and said goodbye to the world via Tumblr on Saturday.
There’s a memorial page on Facebook for him here.
This is heartbreaking. We absolutely must act, and we must act now. We cannot stand idly by while human being after human being makes a decision they can’t take back. We have the power to end this cycle. We have to stand up for Jamie, for Jamey, for Tyler, for Billy, for Asher, for every single person who has ever been told they are not good enough. You are good enough. You can get through this. We’re going to prove it to you.
