Tolerance and Support for Your Peers

According to the National Sexuality Resource Center, gay youth are more than 8 times as likely to commit suicide. They are more than 3 times as likely to be physically bullied by peers. In the past 6 weeks over 10 LGBTQ teenagers have committed suicide.
Join us for an eye-opening informative discussion about cyber-bullying, homophobia, and media portrayals of the LGBTQ community. We welcome all perspectives in a judgment-free environment where we can talk freely about tolerance/intolerance and gay stigmas in the minority community.
Following the discussion there will be a candle-light vigil in the LLC courtyard to honor the memory of those who have passed.
