It wasn't just that Nick's father and stepmother verbally attacked him and kicked him out of the house when they learned he was bisexual, though that was painful and traumatic enough. According to the 18-year-old, they also cut off his phone, took back his car and confiscated the money he'd earned bagging groceries. Penniless and homeless, he's been dependent on the kindness of others — and have they ever come through. Steve Bevers, whose mother-in-law works with Nick, gave him a home and also set up a GoFundMe page that has raised more than $14,000 in pledges. Now the Kennesaw State freshman is trying to keep his grades up and looking into housing options, whipsawed by emotions after being disowned by family and embraced by strangers. "You guys," he tells his benefactors in the video, "pretty much saved my life." [Source]
