The New York Times used the death of Seth Walsh to bring attention to a greater social issue in a piece Sunday by Jesse McKinley.
The structure of this story made this transition very smooth. The lead of the story was about the death of Seth Walsh, 13, who had attempted suicide after coming out.
The story then broadened to other gay teens who have committed suicide after coming out. Then the story focused on what lead to these unfortunate incidents.
Gay rights and discrimination are also discussed thoroughly in the article.
McKinley ended the story where it began by using a "kicker quote" from Walsh's mother.
