In the wake of the tragic suicide of Rutgers student Tyler Clementi, there has been a renewed vigor to the discourse surrounding bullying among young people. Propelling the discussion has been a series of videos made by celebrities, sharing their own stories of discrimination and bullying. And messages of hope.
There have already been a series of videos from the It Gets Better project, which seeks to give solace to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered young people, and there's also the encouraging Love Is Louder series.
Love Is Louder is a series of videos, as well as the umbrella under which a larger online antibullying discussion is taking place. Video testimonials have been made by the likes of Neil Patrick Harris, Ke$ha, Joe Jonas, DJ Pauly D, JWOWW and Snooki from "Jersey Shore," Semi Precious Weapons and MTV TJ Gabi Gregg, as well as dozens of folks like yourself.
