Gay-on-Gay Bullying: Such a Shame

I've made bullying prevention one of my top priorities, including cyber-bullying and anti-LGBT bullying. In all my advocacy and research, I seem to have missed another important subset of bullying: gay men bullying other gay men ("gay-shaming" or "gay-on-gay" bullying). It never occurred to me that LGBT persons, who have been victims of bullying themselves for many years, would then turn to bullying members of their own community. That is until I was the target of such bullying.
