Billy Lucas
July 1995-September 9, 2010
Billy was a bright 15 year old that enjoyed spending time on the computer, with his horses and raising lambs. As he was also LGBT, he found others in his community did not respond positively to his differences and they chose to make life very difficult for him.
On September 9th 2010, he was found hanging in his barn where he had spent so much time with his beloved animals, unaware so many people were available and willing to help.
