The young conservative student who led a protest against a Brisbane Drag Queen Story Hour for kids has died in a suspected suicide, The Daily Mail reports.

Wilson Gavin’s death comes after he was ruthlessly slammed by news outlets and celebrities after footage of the “Drag queens are not for kids” protest was uploaded to social media yesterday.

The group of protesters have been described as “disgusting”, “hateful” and “homophobic”, with a Channel 7 reporter describing the protest as a “disturbing” “lesson in bigotry.”

Yesterday, Jessica Origliasso of The Veronicas also posted the footage to her Instagram page, calling it a tone-deaf protest fueled by bigotry.

“I am absolutely furious. Our world is in need of love & healing, now more than ever. What they did today was add to the bigotry, division and trauma young children are left to face in today’s society.”

Jane Caro responded to the video saying, “What appalling, nasty, rude behaviour by these self righteous young liberals. I’d rather my grandchild were read a story by a drag queen than a young liberal any day of the week. Drag queens are smarter, kinder, funnier and way more stylish – and that’s just for starters.”

Following the protest, the hashtag #IStandWithQueens and #HitlerYouth began trending in Australia.
