Boy Bullied For Coming Out Commits Suicide
(Denver, CO) — A Denver school is investigating claims that a nine-year-old boy committed suicide after he was bullied for coming out as gay. Jamel Myles killed himself last Thursday, soon after the new school year started. His mother says Jamel came out as gay over the summer. The fourth-grader’s school says it’s providing social workers and counseling for students. A Denver Public Schools spokesman says the district is looking at all the concerns the case has raised and focusing first on keeping students safe.
