I was bullied for being a lesbian
12:36pm Tuesday 18th December 2012 in News
A HAMPSHIRE teenager has spoken of the nightmare she suffered at the hands of bullies- because she is lesbian.
Victoria Munro, 17, has revealed how school bullies called her names, tried to push her off her bike and even harassed her online leaving her so low she tried to take an overdose.
The teen, now an English student at college, even overheard a former school teacher say she should not have come out if she did not want to be bullied.
But now Victoria is celebrating after having her first novel Kiss Chase published which she hopes will help stamp out homophobic bullies by raising awareness of the effect they have on their victims.
