Thanks and Admiration for Ft. Worth Councilmember Burns on Bullying and Being a Gay Teenager

Posted on in Blog

On Tuesday, city councils and commissioners courts (including ours) passed proclamations in support of Bullying Prevention Month. Eloquent words were said over this proclamation in many forums. But, it would be hard to find a more moving statement than that of Fort Worth Councilmember Joel Burns’ describing his unjustified shame and justified fear as a gay teenager and his subsequent joys and pride as a gay adult.

This is REAL heroism. Send him a thank you note at:

Councilmember Joel Burns
District 9
1000 Throckmorton St.
Fort Worth, Texas 76102
