Discussion about gay teen suicide has swelled in the US and accross the world after the death of 14-year-old New York native Jamey Rodemeyer, who reportedly took his own life following years of cruel taunts from peers over his sexual orientation.  Who is to blame? What needs to be done about the problem?  Community of Lights has been a strong supporter of the Trevor Project for the prevention of gay teen age suicide. Jamey recorded a "It Get's Better" message on Youtube four months before taking his life. In his May recording, Jamey had said: "Just love yourself and you're set. And I promise you, It'll get better."
