14-year-old Kenneth James Weishuhn of Primghar, Iowa took his life on Saturday, April 14th 2012, after being bullied for recently coming out as a GLBT teen a few months ago.

I can’t yet verify the facts but will note any change. ( There is a FB tribute  page here). The facts have been verified by a reader. Get more details from the Paulina Times here.

Thankfully here in T&T a number of great young people have set up the  Silver Lining Foundation to help stop this madness.

And LGBTnation  news has a story on the tragedy. When will this stop?  LGBTnews  says funeral Services are scheduled for Thursday, April 19, 2012 at the Grace Lutheran Church in Primghar, Iowa.
