!! OMG, speaking out: David LaChapelle on being bullied !!
"I dropped out of school because I was bullied by a group who subjected me to unrelenting harassment because I dressed different. It ranged from 'faggot' being written on my locker to five guys waiting outside of the classroom. There was nobody to help. I never finished high school -- I dropped out at 15 and came to New York, and it saved my life."
