    I've heard a lot of what's been going on with gay teen bullying in schools and a lot of kids have taken their own lives because of it. Recently in my town, a young boy hung himself in a park because he was gay and bullied at school. This made me SO angry that it happened - and in MY town! I was only a couple blocks away when it happened. If I had any idea, I would have been right there. This shoot is to raise awareness and let people know they are not alone. A bit different editing, but I think it's fun and suiting for the images. Still have more pics to do but this is what I got done so far today.

    In memory of Kris Snary and all other people who have taken their lives due to gay bullying

    Great photos for a wonderful cause. I love how the background brings out different features in each of the subjects.

    Buying a Nikon doesn't make you a photographer. It makes you a Nikon owner.

    Thanks everyone! For some reason some people were not very happy with this (random people I don't know), thought why should I single out and only do it for GAY bullying and not bullying in general.. well it's still bullying in general - however bullying because someone is gay is very wrong. I don't care who you are, homophobes do not exist in my book! And because of the young man who committed suicide because of it in my town recently. Also this wall wasn't very colourful at all, I just kept saturating and saturating lol. Lot of work trying to make them all relatively the same.. but it's just fun. Doesn't have to be perfect.

    These really are fantastic and the message is clear. Too bad a major advertiser or network doesn't ask you for these!

    I agree, the world needs more people like you!
