Singer Lady Gaga has vowed to keep the memory of Jamey Rodemeyer alive through anti-gay bullying legislation.

Jamey is the 14-year-old Buffalo junior high school student who committed suicide after being bullied for coming out gay.

In May, Jamey posted a heartbreaking YouTube video for the It Gets Project, which reaches out to struggling gay teens considering suicide. “Lady Gaga, she makes me so happy, and she lets me know that I was born this way. And that's my advice to you from her. People are born this way. All you have to do is hold your head up and you'll go far,” he said in the clip. “Just love yourself and you're set … It gets better.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

The video was a relief for his parents who saw it as a sign that their son's struggle might be coming to an end.

On Wednesday, Lady Gaga vowed to push for a federal anti-bullying law to honor Rodemeyer's memory.

“The past days I've spent reflecting, crying, and yelling,” she tweeted to her nearly 14 million followers. “It is hard to feel love when cruelty takes someones life.”

“Jamey Rodemeyer, 14 yrs old, took his life because of bullying. Bullying must become be [sic] illegal. It is a hate crime.”

“I am meeting with our President,” she added. “I will not stop fighting. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it. Trend it #MakeALawForJamey.”

President Barack Obama earlier this year recorded his own It Gets Better video. The administration on Wednesday and Thursday is hosting the second annual Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention Summit. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius and Assistant Secretary for the Office for Civil Rights Russlynn Ali are expected to attend the event.
