Transgendered teen takes on bullying in talk show appearance
For 15 years, William Milligan hated being a guy. He played with Barbies, liked wearing heels and eyeliner and knew something wasn't right.
So a few months ago, Milligan changed his name to Selena and began to embrace life in a new way, although it hasn't been easy.
Prompted by the recent string of gay teenage suicides, Milligan, with the support of her family, is coming out and speaking out on national TV this Friday to tell teens like her that suicide shouldn't be an option and to tell bullies to lay off. The issue hit even closer to home this week, after Brandon Bitner, 14, of Middleburg, Pa., committed suicide Friday after being bullied. He was buried Wednesday.

Lohana Berkins: En Nombre Propio
Su abrazo es como un refugio en el que dan ganas de quedarse a dormir o aprovechar para llorar una pena antigua con la seguridad de que habrá consuelo. Cuerpo generoso, sonrisa fácil aun en medio de las luchas más encarnizadas y una viveza en la lengua que conserva desde las épocas en que las persecuciones policiales o institucionales en general la obligaron a usar el carrilche —ese lenguaje callejero que las travestis inventaron como una de las tantas estrategias de autodefensa—, Lohana Berkins es mucho más que una de las figuras visibles del activismo queer. Es, además, alguien capaz de generar las carcajadas más agudas o de estampar huevos sobre los fundamentalistas católicos que amenazaban con el infierno a quienes reclamaban el matrimonio igualitario en la Plaza del Congreso, pero esquivando la figura de la Virgen que los fanáticos enarbolaban.
