Statement on the Death of Nex Benedict: Autopsy Update

Soon after our March 12th statement on the death of Nex Benedict, the autopsy was released, showing the cause of death as suicide. We mourn this tragic death, and our hearts go out to all LGBTQ+ students in Oklahoma and across our country who face bullying for how they identify, present themselves, and love. Policies in states like Oklahoma brand LGBTQ+ people as “less than“ and as a problem that needs to be solved. LGBTQ+ students exist in schools everywhere and deserve to be represented in curriculum and literature to help build understanding and to reduce bullying. We don‘t want to "make your straight kids gay," we want our LGBTQ+ kids to live. We hope the current investigation holds all applicable parties accountable.
