Gay and Lesbian Suicide Awareness
Every 16 minutes in the US, someone dies by suicide.
Whether you have lost someone close to you to suicide or not, I urge you to check out these sites. As many agree, this has become an epidemic. I have personally lost many family, friends and loved ones to suicide and believe it is so important to share stories, info and as much as awareness as possible in hopes that, you and I can help someone.
To Write Love on Her Arms
"It is difficult to fully research LGBT youth suicide because many young lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgenders have not "come out." But studies indicate that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth are up to four times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers. And those who are rejected by their family are up to nine times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers. "
A very wise woman said, " Hopefully one day LOVE will be the religion of the world and no one will be ever be excluded."
