The page reads “Here to stand up for everyone who needs defending.
The school’s staff isn’t protecting us, it’s up to the students to help each other.” Friends have also set up a memorial page for Lance on Facebook.
However, it can be tough stuff, finding other gay teens. Whether you are hoping to meet friends, or interested in dating, it is likely someone else is in the same boat!
With work, spending time with family, vacationing and hanging out with friends this summer, dating can seem like another time commitment that’s not exactly worth the investment.
The Sheriff’s Office confirmed to KSAX-TV that they believed Lundsten’s death was a suicide.
The Sheriff would not confirm the nature of the medical emergency.
Friends say that Lance suffered extreme bullying and harassment for years. Saturday, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office responded to an emergency call at the Lundsten’s residence in Miltona, Minnesota.
Lance Lundsten, 18, an openly gay student at Jefferson High School, took his life over the weekend.
