Ok, well, now I've cried. This Irish anti-gay bullying ad was created for BeLonG To Youth Services annual Stand Up! LGBT Awareness Weeks to encourage young people to stand up for their queer friends.

Thank you for posting this. I'm sobbing like a baby. I wish people had done that for me when I was in school. Happy International Day Against Homophobia!

As a straight woman, I say it's about bloody time this message of acceptance went out. Hate is so insidious -- and this kind of bullying engenders self hate, which can be a needless, crippling, lifelong burden. I think this is awesome.

This video is a wonderful example of the peer support gay youth will hopefully find when they are in high school. As a gay man who didn't come out until his late 20s, I truly hope that young gay people are comfortable being who they are. Believe in yourself above all else.
