Keith Williams had come out to some family before going off to college, but when he arrived he found himself back in the closet until the door was ripped open.
One day he was shown a gossip website by a friend at the university that ran an article headlined: Freshman Class President or Freshman Class Queen? And immediately he knew he had been found out.
Williams shares his story today for National Coming Out Day with us in hopes of showing others who find themselves cyberbullied that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and to reach out to others for support.
Oh, and this one bit of advice: “If you’re experiencing any type of cyberbullying…it’s difficult, and you feel like the whole world is against you.”
“But it’s probably just a few folks behind a computer who have nothing better to do than talk about your life,” he continues.
