Description

This suicide video was part of my A Level drama performance that I created to bring awareness of people who commit suicide through bullying just because of their sexuality . My assessment was to devise a performance piece of my choice, as well as to perform another 3 scenarios that my drama group had devised. I had come up with a scenario of a teenage boy who currently has no friends at school and gets bullied all because he's openly gay. The boy later on in the performance comes out to his parents and his sister around the dinner table. His father becomes against the idea and doesn't accept his own son. The boy results hanging himself in his room and is later discovered by his parents. The video plays near the end of the performance as a summary. The video is NOT REAL... It's just to bring awareness and hopefully make a small difference. Artist of song: Natalie Merchant -- My Skin.
