suicide : Gay & Black Glossary


Teenage gays are especially prone to suicide. They feel isolated. They bear the weight of Christian-inspired homophobia and hatred. Once they meet other gays, they are much safer since they pick up self-accepting attitudes from other gays. However, if they remain in the closet, pretending to the world at large that they are straight, that hiding creates problems. They can’t have a steady lover. They can’t have gay friends to their home. This leads to an empty promiscuous lifestyle that can lead to suicide. It is much better to let people know you are gay. Then most of the snide remarks about gays will stop. Bigots don’t have the courage to say their garbage to your face. You can then have a relationship and an open social life.
