I've used this quote my father told me to help me in life now for a number of years. He supported me and the rights of the LGBT community. He was against all bullying, not just that against the LGBT but anyone who was seen as different. He passed away last year and I think he would have wanted me to share his words with others to help inspire them. I don't necessarily have the same deliver he did, but I hope you see it meaning none the less.
Rest in Peace Father
