Does religious counseling of gay youth lead to increased suicide risk? Study suggests exactly that. The study also seems to suggest that would be black LGB teenagers. Looks like trans youth not included in this study.
"Of individuals who attempted suicide, 23% sought mental health or medical treatment and 14% sought religious or spiritual treatment prior to the suicide attempt. Black and Latino LGBs were underrepresented in mental health or medical treatment and Black LGBs were overrepresented in religious or spiritual treatment. Seeking mental health or medical treatment was not associated with lower odds of a suicide attempt; seeking religious or spiritual treatment was associated with higher odds of a suicide attempt."
if you double click on the video, it takes you to youtube and doesn't cut off the right-most part.... :-)
Something on a lighter note... part is relevant to this group, and part is just plain clever - one-man A Capella.
Fallen Angel, truly a horrible report.
Matt Baum gives the current update from AFER on the freedom to marry progress.
Hi Fallen Angel, well I have been a member of this group for quite some time and I am sure everyone here knows my transgender status and I have been accepted with no problem. Us "Ts" have to make ourselves visible which we tend not to do. I join into everything under the LGBT banner and I have always been made a full partner in the activities. Too many of us are not out and proud and until we get fully involved we will appear on the outside I am involved with SAGE and PROMO and I belong to a number of lesbian groups and the only place I have ever found prejudice has been OLOC. When I was made aware of their bias I promptly resigned and I hear that a number of non T ladies have also dropped membership.
My advice, don't complain - just get involved. It works.
i think the issue of transgenders is kind of not being addressed and kind of swept under the table and thoroughly diluted into gay rights and sexuality, transsexualism is actually a very different issue, it has to do with gender and gender expression, so, im just leaving this message here for atheists to see so hopefully they can help create some awareness for the trans community and encourage people to get educated about what being trans really is, thank you :)ps. not that you guys don't care about the trans community already, just putting this out there cause, you know, poular atheists often talk about the lgbt community and mention homosexuality a lot but they don't really cover gender identity and gender expression, which i think they should...maybe it might get someone's attention out there
