LGBTQ Teen Honored: Update on Documentary Bully
Just a quick update about the amazing documentary film Bully which has an R rating from the MPAA. I blogged about it a few weeks ago here. GLADD will be honoring a young lady who has gathered over 200k signatures petitioning the MPAA for a rating change.
Katy Butler, the Michigan high school student who started an online petition to change the R rating of the documentary Bully, will be honored by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation later this month. (via The Advocate.com)
I cannot say enough times how important it is that the rating of this movie be changed. It's message is brutal and honest. This is the reality of what kids deal with. And kids need to see it. Parents need to see it with their kids. Human beings need to see this and get involved in changing the way they model their own behavior.
Please keep spreading the word about the important message of this documentary!
