LGBT History month debate – another gay teen

Standard

Another gay American teenager has killed himself.

Zach Harrington, 19, killed himself a week after attending a Norman city council debate on September 28th on whether the city should recognise Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender History Month.

Pink News

This is being reported as a big problem in the United States, but I wonder how many young gay teens in these islands are also committing suicide because they do not have the support they need.

I know that GLYNI does good work in Belfast city supporting young people from 16 to 25 years of age. I know, because I was one of them about ten years ago. If it were not for GLYNI, it is probable that I would not be around now to be able to post this blog. So thank you everyone over the years in GLYNI.
