Billy Lucas: 1995-2010

Billy Lucas, 15, took his own life because of homphobic bullying.
"Greensburg High School principal Phil Chappel said that officials were unaware of bullying against Lucas, but friends said the abuse was constant, and often directed to what the aggressors presumed about his sexual orientation."
This is happening too fucking often.

EDIT: Tragically I typed too soon, 19 year-old gay student Tyler Clementi, has also killed himself.
