Gay Men's Chorus honors cyber-bullying victim Tyler Clementi

Tyler Clementi was an 18-year-old Rutgers University freshman who killed himself after his roommate recorded webcam videos of Tyler’s lustful encounters with another man, then invited other students to view them. With Ann Campton Hallaway, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus premieres “Tyler’s Suite,” composed in Tyler's honor, in Davies Symphony Hall Tuesday and Wednesday, March 25 - 26.  It's part of the chorus' concert LUSTER: An American Songbook.  On tonight's Out in the Bay (7pm), Tyler’s mother Jane Clementi and SFGMC artistic director Timothy Seelig discuss cyber-bullying, other life and death issues, and the work of the Tyler Clementi Foundation and the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus.  Eric Jansen hosts.
