LGBT Stories: Bullying Affects Everyone

Jason Dinant TR

BY NATHAN MANSKE

Guestblogger Nathan Manske and Marquise Lee embarked on a 4 month, 50 state tour of the United States collecting stories for their I'm From Driftwood site. We'll be sharing some of the stories they collected along with some of the insight into what they saw. They're still encouraging people to submit their written stories via IFD. You can follow IFD on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

We met Jason in Las Vegas back in October, when the media was in full swing of focusing on gay bullying and suicides. We noticed a shift in stories people wanted to share, many talking about their own bullying and near-suicide experiences. Jason's story brings up an interesting point, that bullying doesn't only affect one group but that we're all in this together. Vegas was also the same place we filmed Ace's story, the Deaf gay man who stood up to his bullies with great success.
