It Gets Better: Erin Robinson
The lovely Erin Robinson (formerly Erin White) talks about her best friend Matthew dying of an overdose. Matthew had problems dealing with the stigma of being gay. Robinson talks about how painful the lost of her best friend was to her. The political and social demonization against the LGBT community has real life consequences. Hetrosexual conservatives aren't going to suddenly get divorced and become gay if gay marriage is legal. Gay people do have to deal with discrimination. Fear of coming out to employers and family members. Gay people in America have to deal with certain segments of society telling them that they are going to Hell and are worthless. That takes a toll on people like Matthew.
