15 Year Old Nigel Shelby Commits Suicide due to Being Bullied for Being Gay

We at Gaye hate to bring such devastating news on Easter Sunday, but publishing these stories is one of the reasons why Gaye Magazine was created.

15-year-old Nigel Shelby, a high school freshman at Huntsville High school, took his life because of being bullied for being gay. Rocket City Pride shared the news via Facebook, stating, “We will be collecting donations at Huntsville’s Only Drag Brunch on Sunday and at Drag Queen Bingo on Tuesday.”

A GoFundMe account has been created to help Nigel’s mother fund his funeral expenses. Please donate what you can to help.

We are heartbroken to receive this news. Please share this story to bring awareness to this issue. We send our sincerest condolences to Nigel’s family and friends. May he forever Rest in Peace.
