At the time gay marriage was not legally recognized and since they did not have written wills his partner was not allowed to have anything to do with the memorial services. The thought of this happening to one of my friends is absolutely heartbreaking and so for my birthday this year which is October 16 I want to raise money for Love is Louder which is a foundation that speaks out against bullying,discrimination, and depression. $2000 is my goal my that doesn't mean we have to stop there, lets raise as much as we can! I have been extremely blessed in my life and in 2013 I want to give back in honor of my friends.
