The suicide of college student Tyler Clementi put a new focus on bullying of gay and lesbian youth. Jews speak out about how Jewish and LGBT identity intersect.
Diane Flacks, a Jewish actress and writer, appears in the “It Gets Better Canada,” the country’s LGBT community’s artistic contribution to the anti-bullying campaign. Flacks can be seen in the popular, 12-minute video saying, “In my son’s class, a lot of the kids say, ‘I have two moms!’ and they don’t. But they wish they did.”
