Lesbian student disowned by parents reached GoFundMe goal


The fundraiser in support of lesbian athlete Emily Scheck has stopped accepting donations after topping $100,000 worth of contributions from more than 2,500 people. The announcement came from Grace Hausladen, her teammate and one of the organizers of the fundraising. “By the amount of shares and attention this story was able to bring, Emily has more than enough to replace the financial support her parents will no longer give,” Grace wrote, adding that even though Emily’s particular page is closing, people can continue express their support, Emily understands that there are millions of people like her and she would like people who were touched by her story to help LGBT charity groups if they can, it would make the world much better place to live. “A nation came together to help out a person in need and showed that Emily was worth fighting for,” Grace also wrote.
