The Story of a Suicide

The New Yorker’s lastest issue has a fascinating article about the death of Tyler Clementi, a Rutger’s student who committed suicide last year after being outed as gay. The circumstances leading up to his outing, the actions of his roommate and another student, and the criminal justice response are all detailed in the article. It’s a long one (14 pages), so put it aside for when you have some time, but it’s worth the read.

His family started a foundation in his name; you can read more about (and contribute to) the work they do here.
