Harrowing Story of Anti-Gay Prejudice

A video posted yesterday has become viral on Youtube. On it a young gay man who lost his committed partner of 6 years accounts how his partner died in an accident this time last year and the horrific details of how the deceased lover's homophobic family acted afterwards. When the lover went home for Christmas to come out to his family, the reaction was less than stellar. The mother asked why he hadn't told them they can get him medical help. The father took it worse. He threatened him with a gun and became violent. The boyfriend had to flee his home in terror. Then last year, May 7th 2011, he died and the bitch mother flew to California to collect his body and his belongings. She did not regard his partner for 6 years. Did not take his feelings into consideration at all. She just took all his stuff and left it up to him to arrange for his body to be transported back to Indiana. Well, naturally, the partner wanted to attend the funeral in Indiana to pay his respects and say goodbye. He flew out but during his layover he got a call from a family member and they told him to not show up. Basically the father and an uncle had planned to physically assault him if he showed up. During the service they completely cut out the last 6 years of his life, as if it never happened. Oh, and the two of them bought a house together and started a company together. They had a fucking LIFE together and because they had no LEGAL bond in the eyes of our FUCKED UP government, the partner had no claim on ANYTHING he shared with the love of his life.
