My New Voice

with 2 comments


Recent tragic events have served to give me, finally, my true voice. I’ve often written about gay teen suicide in my lyrics hoping, I guess, that someone, somewhere who was truly at risk would hear the songs and reconsider. Not enough. I took this particular suicide very personally even though if he were alive today, I wouldn’t know him from the man in the moon. Doesn’t matter. I know him now. He’s directly and incredibly touched my life in a very deep way.jamie HubleyTo say “things will never be the same” is cliche at best, moot at the least. I can’t say this any clearer or directly: I want gay teen (and, ANY teen!) suicide eradicated. And, I won’t stop raising awareness…ever. That’s my gift to you, Jamie Hubley, as a tribute to your life and as a thank you for giving me my voice.
