“Thank you for helping him see that not only DOES it get better, it gets AMAZING.”

Excerpt from a letter sent by the mother of a 12-year-old gay youth, Colin, who she says is bullied in school. That letter was sent to Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge, aka the Beekman Boys, the gay couple who were shown winning the 21st season of Emmy-winning The Amazing Race on the Dec. 9 finale of the reality TV show. In response, Kilmer-Purcell and Ridge recruited their fellow cast members, who photographed themselves with messages telling Colin he is “amazing.”
