Intriguing Study Finds Suicide Attempts for Gay Teens are Higher in Politicly Conservative Areas

I just read about this study on the Washington Post and have to say that I am not surprised. The study basically showed that 25% of the gay teens in politically conservative areas attempted suicide where 20% attempted suicide in more liberal areas. The study also shows this trend holds for straight kids as well.

Read about the whole study here

I want to add that these numbers either way are alarmingly high but completely believable. We must do something to reverse this dangerous trend.
