EL PASO, Texas — Another bullied gay youth lost to suicide.
El Paso teen Brandon Elizares, 16, took his own life on June 2, according to family and friends.
Brandon’s mother, Zachalyn Elizares, told KFOX-TV on Friday that her son was bullied at school for two years because he did not want to hide the fact that he was gay.
“He got bullied simply for being gay,” Elizares said. “He’s been threatened to be stabbed. He’s been threatened to be set on fire.”
