There have been several recent discussions on the subject, but I haven't seen this article posted yet, so here's the link: http://www.thenewcivilrightsmovement.com/johnwright/32_young_lgbt_mormons_have_committed_suicide_since_early_november_group_says
"Thirty-two young LGBT Mormons reportedly have taken their own lives since early November — when the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced a new devastatingly anti-gay policy labeling people in same-sex marriages "apostates" and barring their children from being baptized.
All of the victims were between the ages of 14 and 20, with an average age of 17. Twenty-seven were male, three were female and two were transgender, and all but six of the suicides occurred in Utah."
I left TSCC in California over Prop H8. I thought they would have learned their lesson, but they just can't seem to stop the hatefest. I have a TBM friend with a bi-sexual daughter who couldn't stop crying when the policy was announced. I told her if it was causing her (and her family) that much grief, she had other options. But she "knows" the cult is led by a profit, so she and her family will continue to endure to the end, whatever that means. It almost makes me physically ill, but it's her life, her daughter, her decision. I'm just glad my daughter and I are out. Two sons still in, one a minor in high school. I'm glad the youth are bailing, but it's still really difficult when family are involved.
