Glee’s Naya Rivera Releases Bully PSA


Glee actress Naya Rivera stars in a new PSA that aims to help combat bullying.

The actress, who plays fiery lesbian cheerleader Santana on Fox’s hit show, uses the PSA to highlight just how many kids in the USA are bullied every year.

She then says: ”I’m Naya Rivera, and I’m taking a stand against bullying…There are many ways to help [stop bullying] from standing up for a kid in school to teaching kids about acceptance and love.”

Watch the video below:

This video comes as an addition to The Bully Project, a campaign that was created in conjunction with The Weinstein Company’s documentary “Bully” that follows bullied kids over the course of a year.

Good for her! She should keep up the good work!
One of the ways to help stop the bullying is though exposure to the area causing the bullying. The more characters on TV series, movies and in the general view of the public who are gay/lesbian/bi/transgender ect. the more use to real life people coming out to us and the less likely it is for bullying to get a hold. It might not completely stamp out the problem but it's a way to help! We can't do it without brave people like her playing those characters.
I can't wait until the world is able to casually interact with those who are interested in the same sex, it's not like it's a big deal I've had quite a few friends tell me they're gay because they don't feel confident to tell anyone else in their lives but they don't want to feel like they've got to constantly hide.

What do you do when a Grade 10 teacher singles you out as the smallest person in the class, makes you sit front and center, wears size 13 shoes, is 6'5"tall, puts his toes down on your feet and sticks his stinky crotch in your face, when he weighs 250lbs. and you only weigh 145lbs?
