One is too many. Six demands action.
“Back to school” isn’t supposed to mean a return to bullying, torment, fear or suicide. Yet this September it meant just that for too many LGBT and presumed to be LGBT children and youth.
In the last four weeks the relentless drumbeat announcing yet another LGBT youth suicide has been simply horrible. One would be too many. Six compels us all to act.
Our hearts go out to the families, friends and classmates who have experienced the unimaginable grief that accompanies this kind of loss.
