night my friend and fellow GLSEN board member Jared Fox was the victim of a gay
hate crime in Cleveland. He was jumped and beaten by a group of young men
while they yelled gay slurs at him and then asked, “Do you want to die?” I am
angry and heartbroken over what he has endured in the last three days. This
needs to stop!! Every parent raising a son needs to take responsibility and
teach their boys that this is unacceptable.
Jared led a demonstration, gave interviews to the local media and has been working with local police. I admire his courage and we all stand behind him. NO MORE GAY BASHINGS!!
