A BISEXUAL teenager has taken her own life after being relentlessly bullied for her sexual orientation.
Named only as N.A.B, the 17-year-old, from Rois, in Coruña, ended her life ‘as she could not bear so much hatred’, rights groups said on Monday.
The girl was reportedly bullied at two different schools in the Galicia region and was constantly harassed on social media.
According to LGBTQ+ groups, who have spoken to the victim’s family, she fell into a depression before dying by suicide on October 1.
The teen had reportedly tried to take her own life on several previous occasions.
Not much has been revealed about the case other than that the girl studied at two schools, one in Rois and another in Bertamirans, both in Santiago de Compostela.
A collection of Galician LGBTI groups lamented the girl’s death and had a message for those who bullied her.
“Each and every person who hated her for being bisexual, and who let her know it, are her murderers,” they said in a statement.
They also criticised the lack of support the victim received.
They said people ‘looked the other way’ when she was bullied either ‘out of fear or indifference’ and that there were people who could have helped her but ‘they did not get involved.’
“They are all accomplices to her murder,” they said.
According to La Voz de Galicia, her family has asked for ‘respect for our right to personal and family privacy.’
Police or the authorities have yet to comment on the case.
The Galician rights groups which commented on the case are Agrocuir da Ulloa, Alas A Coruña, Amizar, Arelas, Avante LGBT, Chrysallis Galicia, Gotas, LesCoruña, Nos Mesmas, Rede Educativa de Apoio LGTB de Galicia, Sete Outeiros and Sex Point.
