Yes, and I've been there, too. I spent an entire year of my life being the one in class everyone picked on, just cause. I spent time contemplating suicide ... in third grade, and it has impacted ever since.
You don't need to set up such an absurd scenario in order to touch on that theme and tug heart strings.
Everyone gets bullied, everyone. This is not a new thing, nor is it something that only happens to homosexuals. And it certainly isn't something that only causes homosexuals to feel like killing themselves.
Far better to draw on commonality shared across people than to try to create a scenario that cannot exist in such a fashion and try to get everyone to suspend their disbelief.
