Comments: I'm so sorry that your son had to go through this in his young life. I, at the age of 20, have many friends who have been openly gay, and go through the exact same thing daily to the point of depression. I thank you very much for such a great page.. Even though I didn't know your son, he definately is a person to look up to..

Comments: Thank you so much for sharing with everyone. The term family in the glbt communtiy means exactly that. You're Family in Las Vegas NV. Is thinking about you and yours.
I am a 24 yr old genetic female. I feel that i am MUCH more than that. I am effected by my surroundings an aweful lot. I too battle with depression, and it is an every day battle. Your families story gives me that extra motivation that i sometimes need to remember what i am fighting for everyday. I am very active in the community here. And sometimes there are positives here, but the bad outway the good.
Thank you again, for being who you are.

Comments: hello, my name is Nikita and i was doing a random search on yahoo and i was interested in reading your story. People these dyas are cruel and its just terrible in the world we live today. Society is gonna catch up to us one day and were not gonna like the results. I have many friends who are gay or a lesbian and its doesnt bother me one bit. They are the most nicest poeple i know well at least most of them. I personally think that the people who did that to your son should get more then what they deserved, its just pettty to them. they dont care about probation or anything like that. Anyways i am with you all the way and i am very sorry to hear that you lost your son over this crude manner. life shouldnt be this way. God didnt intend us to be this cruel to each other. I'm praying for you and good luck!
with lovw, nikita

Comments: Hi. I am also bisexual. It is hard to deal with all the things you hear. I can't bring my girlfriend to my last prom, or even to anything. It's sad to hear about your brother. I teared up when I was reading the story. It really got to me. It is things like this that makes me feel that more should be done to protect the bisexuals. I have gotten into a fight because of my sexual preference. I was suspended from school. I wasn't fair. All i was honestly doing was defending my girlfriend. That happened last year. Now i still hear about it. It doesn't seem to ever end. I do get depressed at times.

Comments: Hi
I found your site while searching . . . I am 19, openly gay among my friends and (some) former high school teachers. I feared "coming out" as a lesbian during my high school years because I was already labeled, already being teased for dealing with depression, having too high grades and everything else. It was always rumored that I was gay and because of this many, many of my classmated ignored me or called me prude. Most didn't even talk to me except for my close group of friends. I attempted suicide shortly before graduation. A family history of depression is hard but when a person has also been sexually abused and is gay it seems to get that much harder. I was raped by a boyfriend - early on in my freshman year my health teacher labeled me bisexual and I tried so hard to prove myself as "straight" because I was taught that homo/bisexuality was wrong, inappropriate.
What happened to your son was tragic and shouldn't have ever happened. Unfortunately, that same hate is evident in my town and school officials have not done anything to help solve the problems that occur. They are few because very, very few students come out for the fear of being hurt. I knew 1 openly gay student during my years of high school because everyone else remained quiet and huddled in corners trying to blend in. Because most gay/les/bi students remain quiet, the school doesn't think there is a problem or any harrassment towards them. Personally, I think they are completely blind.
Thank you for sharing your story.

Comments: I am a Haitian guy and a student in Boston. I am also bi-sexual. I find your words inspiring and I am sorry for what happened to that kid. I recently admitted to myself that I was sexually and romantically drawn to men and women.
It was hard because I was raised to believe being "non straight" was bad. Also, I liked sports and liked hanging out with guys. I did not look or act gay so I never saw myself as non straight because I thought gays were weird and acted weird. Hey, I am what I am. Currently, I am closeted and sort of in love with a girl named Lauren B.
I just hope the kids out there who are gay, bisexual or lesbian can keep their heads up and fight for their rights. I honestly think we can win.
Peace.

Comments: I read Bill's story and feel regret for what happened to him. I am puzzled about one thing, however. The article keeps referring to Bill as "bisexual" and that implies he also liked females in a romantic/sexual sense as well - and not just males. Yet I saw no evidence anywhere in the article that Bill was anything but a homosexual. So my question is this: Did Bill lable himself "bi" in order to make his sexual transition easier for his family and friends? Many gays do that, I know from personal experience. And Bill sounds like a classic example of that.

Comments: Bills feelings are so well known to me. I am currently also struggling with my environemnt that is homophobic and often I also have the feeling of being to weak to handle all this. In the end I want to be defined by what I give the community, by my job, ... but not by my sexuality, its just a part of me. But how can you give up after reading your story?! Donīt let hate and intolerance destroy more lifes. I am peoud of you and your family.

Comments: Im so sorry about what happend to him. My boyfriend killed himself on April 14,2004. or today. I was going to his house and when i got to his door and knocked nobody answered..and i thought it was weird because i just talked to him 10 minuets before then and he said he would be home. So i waited and nobody answered so i went in. The door was unlocked. I went in and went up to Blair's room..he wasnt there so i went in the basement..there he was hanging from the link they used to hold up the punching bag. his wrists were cut. I dont know how i will be able to cope with it. Do u have any suggestions at all? if you dont want to email me then you dont have to. its alright, youre problably extremely busy.

Comments: I am a sophomore at the University of Michigan. In my sociology class, I am doing a paper on male agression. I was researching the Matthew Shepard case, but found you instead... I was so moved as I sat at my computer reading your story... I know what it means to be close to someone like your son. It is suck a pointless waste of energy to hate anything... homosexual people are exactly that, they are people... homophobic people think that because they are different, that they have no feelings, but at the same time I have to argue with not only the thought that gay's and lesbians have no feelings, but also that they are different. When someone is gay, it means that their sexual orientation is different... but why does it have to mean that as a human being they are different? There are some people in this world who need a reality check, and perhaps if you reach enough people with your story, it will happen.

I am just in a safer place surrounded by good people. It reminds me that my own activism and strength has to be directed towards helping kids like Bill. I have been there and am sorry for your loss and pain.

Just as we heterosexuals stand up for our rights, the homosexuals have to do just the same. To all of the Homosexuals, stand up for your rights.

People should understand that true love contains two people who are in love not just two people of the opposite sex. To Bill's parents and relatives I'm soooooooo sorry for your loss. No one should be put down or suffer because of their sexuallity. To Bill himself don't ever be ashamed of who you were.I wish you were here so i could talk to you and tell you that.

Comments: Im so sorry for your loss. Bill was a brave and very special person. I can relate to his pain. When I was eleven my mother died and I was refered to a priest for counceling. He raped me several times allways threnting to tell my dad that it was my falt it happened. He had terrifyed me so much that I had a beakdown of sorts. By twelve I had tried to commit suside twice. My life hasent been easy but I testified against the priest "paul shanley" and tried to have the church put him away. Im gay now and my mate of 14 years just died of cancer. It's hard to hold on when life and people can be so cold. I hope you can find a way to cope and find peace.

Comments: I was touched by your story. I don't understand why people would treat otehr people that way becaue they are different. We are all trying to to get to heaven someday, so how can people get to heaven if they are judging one another. I think that this will never be over until the creater comes back and make a believer out of thost type of people. Because NO ONE can get into the kingdom of heaven by judging someone else. So what if he's gay, or straight, we are all GOD's people. And to all people who disagree with what i said, you got my email address, don't sugarcoat nothing, email me and let me know, cause you better believe i will respond. Thank you and may God Bless.

Comments: I looked at a hate crimes website and it provided a link to the story of your son. Being bisexual myself, I know what he went through and I know how tough it is to be open about yourself. Especially with MA being the Gay Rights epicenter it is today (with the gay marriage that I support). It is absolutely disgusting to think that anything like this couldd happen in America today. (ex. Matrthew Shepard, Barry Winchell, Bill Clayton, etc) Stay well.

Comments: I am really touched by your son's life. Eventhough i dont know him and live thousands of mile away, I think that you have been a wonderful mother and you should be proud of yourself. People like you who makes this planet a better place to live in and a reason to live for. I am sure God will bless you and keep up the good work.

I came across your story while I was trying to look up Clayton's throughout the world and was moved by what Bill had to go through. I can only imagine the trauma and helplessness he went through and you as parents as well. I thought I was heterosexual until I met the most loving man and through him I recognised and accepted my bi-sexuality and at 40 years old, haven't had the courage to "come out" and as long as my partner accepts me as I am, I'm happy. Be still and know that God is with you and please keep up the good work you are doing. Bill sure must have been proud to parents as devoted and loving as you.

Comments: first of all i would like to say that i am truly sorry for your loss. I have friends that are homosexual and i understand how awful it is to see them harassed..and be powerless to help them.My best friends mother is gay and she has been dealing with her homosexuality for more years than ive been alive...some people to not realize it is not only the person that is gay they are abusing but also family members and friends....my best friend was so afraid to tell me her mother was gay that i didnt know until we were friends for two years her mother is like a second mother to me i love her and accept her lifestyle.....again i am truly sorry for your loss.

Comments: In my writing class we are writing a paper on hate crimes. In doing research I came upon your story. I was actually in class at this time. Sitting here reading this was so moving to me, I could have cried right then. I am definitely thinking of using this story for my paper. Thank you Becky
