Another preventable suicide by a young gay boy, who claimed, “I hate being the only open gay guy in my school … It f—ing sucks, I really want to end it,” he wrote. Jamie Hubley, as interesting as it may seem to us, and media worthy today, documented the last month of his life. This may be the hardest thing I have ever had to read:
On Friday, Jamie made a final, heartbreaking post.
He thanked his family and his friends, but wrote that he just couldn’t take it anymore.
“Im tired of life really. Its so hard, Im sorry, I cant take it anymore.
“Its just too hard,” he wrote, later referencing It Gets Better, a popular online campaign in which millions of people have posted heartfelt video messages directed at young people struggling with their sexuality and acceptance in the world.
“I dont want to wait 3 more years, this hurts too much. How do you even know It will get better? Its not.”
He ended with another reference, this one to Glee and a subplot this season about Kurt Hummel, a character who is also openly gay and highly talented.
“Remember me as a Unicorn,” he wrote.
Jamie had the support of friends, who watched his struggle, but it only takes being called, “Fag” once to erase all feelings of security and self worth. Unnecessary tragedies need to stop. Jamie, we love you!
