Enough is enough ...

There is very little that needs adding to this video of a father talking about the suicide of his son following homophobic bullying.

I think his words put it best ...

"What I'd ask is that you share this video with your friends and ask them to share it too. If you are a teacher or work with young people feel free to share it in your school or wherever. If you are a young person feel free to take it school and share it through an assembly or a PSE lesson. If you work for a local authority use to raise bullying and teenage suicide as safeguarding issues. You don't need to ask my permission. Thanks. Roger"


  1. Thank you for posting this. Dominic was my son and we are heartbroken.

  2. Dear Paola
    I can't even begin to imagine your pain, but you and all your family are in my thoughts and prayers. My son is now 13, and I shudder to think how it must feel when I try to put myself in your shoes.

    I hope that posting this, (along with the many other people who have been disturbed by Dominic's story) will stop it happening to someone else.

    Thank you so much for posting your comment.
