How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris has reached out to fellow homosexuals after a series of gay suicides. The actor, who plays the hit role of ‘Barney Stinson’ on the CBS sitcom HIMYM and is openly gay, talked about how handling social pressure and bullying gets easier as you get older. As time passes, people stop marginalizing you and are actually interested in people with different set of ideas and different life choices, Patrick added.
Singer Lance Bass also joined in to talk about how sad and unfortunate these suicides were. The ‘N Sync band mate who came out of the closet in his 20s, called these steps unnecessary and said that adequate steps are needed to combat the problem.
These statements come in the wake of the suicide of 18 year old student Tyler Clementi after his gay sex video was posted online by his roomie.
