Suicide Note of a Gay Teen
by Kevin Caruso
The following suicide note was written by Steven, a 16-year-old high school student who happens to be gay. After he wrote this note he attempted suicide by taking an overdose of medication.
He was hospitalized, treated, and not long after his suicide attempt, moved with his family to another state.
Steven was suffering from severe depression when he wrote this note. And I don't know how anyone who was mistreated, bullied, threatened, and emotionally tortured like Steven would not become severely depressed - and suicidal.
I have left the note intact, complete with misspellings, grammatical errors, and profanity, except for inserting "[name removed]" in the place of some names.
Steven's suicide note is extremely disquieting to read. And it is one more reminder of the outrageous bullying that some ignorant losers direct towards young gays and lesbians.
As you read this note, put yourself in Steven's shoes, and try to BEGIN to feel the hell that he endured.
Steven is a very special young man.
We love you Steven,
Please be advised that there is extensive profanity in this suicide note.
I am sorry to the people that I love but I cant fucking take it anymore. So I am gay. Why dooes everyone hate me becaus of that. Fuck them. I have been punched and spit on andcalled faggot, queer, loser, pussy, fag boy. Some asshole painted faggot on my locker. Some people do not talk to me.
