(Gaywebsource.com) Orlando, Florida (10/1/2014) – Indie singer/songwriter Craymo from Orlando, Florida releases his uplifting anti-bullying pop anthem Be Myself that gives you the courage to just be yourself no matter what anyone else thinks. Inspired by the sounds of Maroon 5, One Republic and Robbie Williams, Craymo gets the party started with an upbeat hand clapper that instantly puts you in a good mood and entices you into singing along!
Bullying is reaching epidemic numbers and awareness needs to be made to help young kids, teenagers and adults realize that words, taunting, ridiculing and physically harming another person is wrong and damaging to the person being bullied. Growing up gay Craymo was the victim of bullying many times in his young adult as well as his adult life. Being called names, being teased and being emotionally attacked eats away at the human psyche.
Research shows that half of all children are bullied at some time during their school years. More than 10% are bullied regularly. Over 30% of children with a food allergy have been bullied. Food allergies affect nearly three million children. Girls bully in groups more than boys do and though girls use more indirect emotional type of bullying, research indicates that girls are becoming more physical than they have in the past. There has been an alarming increase of children committing suicide as a result of bullying. Bullying occurs globally in schools everywhere, it’s not just a problem for the United States.
Obese children, people with learning disabilities, having health conditions, wearing glasses, physical disabilities, being gay, etc. are all targets for mean bullies. Gay teens are three times more likely than heterosexual teens to report being bullied. In contrast 80% of gay teens said they were less likely than heterosexuals to say they had bullied someone else. Every day over 160,00 skip school in fear that they will be bullied.
Craymo wanted to create a fun, inspirational and empowering song to embrace your individuality, there is no one else like you. You are unique, just Be Yourself.
