I really struggled with the title with this post. First I considered, "Celebrities jump on the bandwagon stuffed with our dead kids' bodies," or "Celebrities get warm fuzzy publicity on our bullied youths' backs." Those seemed a little harsh, but I still wonder how many of these videos come backed by a publicist shouting, "Get out there and prove you love dead gay kids!"
I realize that our community is all abuzz over the recently publicized gay teens committing suicide, but at this point I'm starting to feel like this has become more about getting face time rather than an actual attempt to stop anti-gay bullying. Want to make a real difference? Donate to the Trevor Project - because I'll bet my bottom dollar that quite a few of these celebrities have gladly opened their video cameras while keeping their checkbooks closed.
Where have all these famous people been all these years while our kids have been killing themselves without any media attention? At what point does it start to turn into a scene from Heathers?
Check out all of the celebrity videos after the jump. Is this a bandwagon or do you think it's still sincere?
