Another Gay Student Commits Suicide After Being Bullied

At Cashmere Middle School in Washington state:

14-year-old Rafael Morelos hanged himself on Jan. 29th after friends say he was subjected to bullying from classmates at Cashmere Middle School, where he had enrolled last fall.

“He told me he got shoved and punched in the face in P.E. in the locker room at Cashmere,” one friend said. Added another: “He was tired of people saying that his little brothers would follow in his footsteps and be gay, too.”

The taunting and bullying got so bad that friends say one bully created a fake Facebook page so that he or she could ridicule Rafael, who was openly gay.

His mother said she had no idea what her son was going through at school.
