Posted November 16, 2018 15:21:59A 17-year-old from a Queensland family who claims he was bullied by his schoolmates for making a sex tape has said he is determined to fight the bullying charges against him.
The Queensland High Court heard the victim was bullied because of his sexual orientation and said his bullying included the threat to call police.
He told the court he was the victim of “bullying from people of different ethnic backgrounds” for being gay.
The victim said the bullying included being told he was “going to hell” and that his sexual preference was “not right” and would never be accepted by the community.
The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged with making a “grossly offensive” and “disgusting” video of himself.
He has pleaded not guilty to making a sexually explicit video.
The court heard the boy was bullied in the same way as others of his family, including his older brother, who was also bullied.
