'DO NOT LET THEM WIN' Wrote Rocker Dave Navarro

Written by 

Dave Navarro

 

In the United States, in response to several teen suicides harassed by homophobic brutes, rocker Dave Navarro wrote an open letter to LGBT teens through the Perez Hilton's blog.

He wrote: "Ok everybody, here is the deal...

I cannot imagine what it’s like growing up in a close minded environment and being gay, bi or tans-gender. I don’t think any of us who aren’t can possibly imagine. The strength and character it must take to stay true to yourself in such an unforgiving microcosm are qualities that a major portion of the world lacks… Sad, but true. It’s just how it is at the moment. However, it’s that very strength and character that gives the world hope for a new way of thinking and acceptance in the future and when one of our children gives in and gives up, it is not only a tragedy but a victory for those who fear diversity. DO NOT LET THEM WIN!"
