catagator's book guide of YA novels dealing with suicide and depression is worth checking out and sharing. It is so important to educate yourself about these topics. Fiction is a great tool to start a dialogue about both and also something to turn to so you feel less alone, whether or not you know someone who struggles with depression/suicidal thoughts or you are someone who does.

Major trigger warning for the video linked above. I have chosen not to post it here directly. 

This week, the video of a family reacting violently to their gay son has gone viral online. Whether you choose to watch it or not, it’s important to know that it’s out there. 

Daniel Ashley Pierce, a 20-year-old from Georgia, came out to his family last year and says they were mostly unresponsive. But this week, he found himself in the middle of an altercation with his father, his stepmother and his grandparents after they confront him about his sexuality. Pierce caught the whole thing on camera, without showing anyone’s face.

In the video, you can hear Pierce’s family disowning him, telling him he’s kicked out of their house, yelling slurs at him, and physically beating him.

"Their reaction was pretty much expected [once] I chose to leave instead of pray because they have always been very vocal about not supporting the gay lifestyle," he told HuffPost. "My [stepmother’s] reaction was the most surprising and hurtful."

The family members involved in the intervention, which he says was “driven by my grandparents,” have not contacted the media, but they left Pierce a voicemail telling him to remove the video of the incident from YouTube. Pierce also says he did not contact police over the apparent altercation in the video.

I watched this video, and I’m going to be messed up about it for a long time. Pierce’s friends have started a fundraising campaign to help cover his living expenses; if you can help, please do

Please be kind to each other. Please, just be kind to each other.

Hits a little too close to home right now. I hope he finds his own tribe, one that accepts and loves him just as he is.
