Letters to Tyler...
Those of you who have read my blog over the last few years may remember I was greatly affected by the October 2010 suicide of Tyler Clementi, a then-18-year-old college freshman who jumped off the George Washington Bridge after his roommate broadcast webcam footage of him with another man.
In a tremendously moving piece for Out magazine, Tyler's older brother, James, who is also gay, pays tribute to Tyler, trying to give a little more perspective into a life that ended far too soon.
