Bullied, The Documentary About Jamie Nabozny Getting Pissed On By Classmates

Narrated by Jane Lynch, the perfectly timed documentary Bullied premiered Tuesday in Washington D.C. and will be made available for free to schools. It tells the story of Wisconsin’s Jamie Nabozny, whose middle and high school years were spent getting peed on, kicked, and verbally abused by classmates because he’s gay. Multiple suicide attempts and running away from home preceded a 1990s lawsuit that resulted in the first court ruling holding a school accountable for not preventing a student’s victimization. (Represented by Lambda Legal, Nabozny eventually settled for around $1 million.)
