For starters, cut off ties with people that discriminate you for being homosexual. People who hate on LGBTs have serious issues, as sexuality, in no way, should be a judge of character. If you're in a school where other students pick on you for being gay, I don't know how far the extent of bullying goes. Maybe they hurt you, or maybe they call you names, or maybe they don't talk to you at all. It's this unfortunate circumstance, where LGBTs are discriminated by everyone around them, from their friends, to their peers, to even their family. I really don't know how to help you out on that one, as there is no solid advice one can provide that would be a surefire way to make your life better. The only thing we can do, is, as fellow compatriots of the internet, be there for you. Friendships can blossom anywhere, and what better place than the vast space that is the Internet?

You can report it to your local Abuse law enforcer or to Social Servers, Child Protection Servers. You can go to your local LGBT Center.

You can stop being abused by people for being gay by spreading the word about it, and grabbing a close friend with you. They will support you, and help you.

When you show indiference, you're gonna make them mad because they're gonna see that you don't care. Or you can talk to someone about it, your parents or a teacher

The best way to do this is with you feeling good about yourself, and ignore the bad reviews.

I personally have lost several friends because I'm not straight. I've tried to find people who support me. If it's family, I personally don't know. But if it's your friends, I personally think it'd be best to find people who support you for who you are.

You can't control what other people are going to think or say about you. You have to learn how to better react to the way it makes you feel. Overcoming those negative emotions are the most important.

Unfortunately, if you're in a situation that your safety is in direct danger, keeping in the closet and staying stealth is your best bet. It's an awful thing--but your safety matters most.

Honestly there is no easy answer to this. Hopefully one day you will be able to move to a place where you will be accepted for who you are. (If the abuse is very physical you may want to report it. Please call 911 or it’s equivalent if you are in a dangerous situation, all people deserve the chance to be happy.)

Stand up for yourself, even if it’s scary. We are all different and that doesn’t make it acceptable for any one to abuse you for being who you are.
