Chris Armstrong: ‘Students Need To Know Where It Can Get Better’

Former University of Michigan student body president Chris Armstrong appeared on MSNBC this morning to discuss his experiences of being publicly bullied by then-Michigan Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvell for being openly gay. Shivell has since been fired, and Armstrong has launched a scholarship fund for victims of anti-gay bullying. “Students are still committing suicide and choosing that route even in spite of being told that it gets better. And I think students need to know specifically where it can get better, the places it can get better and find communities — like the University of Michigan — that really welcome LGBT students,” he said.
