Every once in a while the LGBT community finds support from those we may not expect it from, which makes that support all the more powerful.
Perez Hilton has posted a letter he received from the lead singer of Jane’s Addiction, Dave Navarro who is obviously shocked by the amount of LGBT youth who turn to suicide to stop the pain they’re experiencing as they spend months and years of their lives tormented and bullied about their sexuality.
According to the letter:
“Ok everybody, here is the deal. I cannot imagine what it’s like growing up in a close minded environment and being gay, bi or tans-gender. I don’t think any of us who aren’t can possibly imagine. The strength and character it must take to stay true to yourself in such an unforgiving microcosm are qualities that a major portion of the world lacks… Sad, but true. It’s just how it is at the moment. However, it’s that very strength and character that gives the world hope for a new way of thinking and acceptance in the future and when one of our children gives in and gives up, it is not only a tragedy but a victory for those who fear diversity. DO NOT LET THEM WIN!
