LGBTQ Bullying on Nov. 17 Speakeasy

Listen to the interview at I nearly lost a friend to suicide because he was mercilessly bullied for being gay. I heard a powerful young woman speak recently and decided I'd like more folks to hear what she has to say. On Nov. 17, I'll welcome Ashley Horan to the show. Ashley serves as the intern minister for the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis. In her capacity as a liaison to students at UC Davis, Horan has spoken about the intolerance that has fueled a widely publicized rash of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) suicides recently, and the resulting "It Gets Better Campaign" on YouTube and Facebook. Horan, who identifies as a queer person of faith, speaks about the perception that people of faith are responsible for perpetuating intolerance, and posits UU as a place and a faith welcoming of all people. She shares a message of encouragement for all who are being bullied because of their sexual preference. Please tune in Wed., Nov. 17 at 10 a.m. or catch the archive here on
