Trevor Project Trends Help Gay Teens

the-trevor-project-logoWhat’s the point on living when you are rejected from family, friends or society in general? Not everyone is perfect when it comes to decisions. We may not be okay with gay people, but they are still people and people should be treated right.

In States such as Arkansas, Kentucky, Georgia, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas, Louisiana, Ohio, Tennessee, and Mississippi all have a law that wont let gay people work. How would the straight people react if all the gay people wouldn’t let them work because they were straight? Life is full of disappointment, but does that mean we should judge just because they made a mistake. Instead of judging we should just guide them to the right bath by helping them. We don’t want some states to be okay with gay marriages we want all the states to be okay with it.

It is devastating to note in CDC’s study that in the last year, 43% of LGB students in grades 9-12 seriously considered suicide, 38% made a suicide plan, and nearly 30% attempted suicide. The CDC has further identified that LGB students are more than four times more likely than their straight peers to have a suicide attempt severe enough to require medical attention. (Trevor Project). It’s so wrong for gay people to take their life’s away, but I don’t blame them when you have people tarring you apart or businesses not letting you work just because you believe in something different.

A gay Thirteen year old was once rejected by families and friends because of his sexuality. They weren’t excepting his way of life. From the neglection attempted suicide.

The stated goals of Trevor project are to provide crisis intervention and suicide prevention services for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young people ages 13-24, as well as to offer guidance and resources to parents and educators in order to foster safe, accepting and inclusive environments for all youth, at home and at school. (Trevor Project).

Daniel Radcliffe a donator said, “I am very pleased to begin my support of the Trevor Project, which saves lives every day through its critical work. It’s extremely distressing to consider that in 2009 suicide is a top-three killer of young people, and it’s truly devastating to learn that LGBTQ youth are up to four times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers.”

In John 15:17, it reads, this is my command to you: Love one another. We may not be God, but we can treat people like god treated people. All we need to do is love them and support them even if you don’t agree with what they are doing. Lets not push them out of our lives but lets invite them into our lives lets show them they have a reason to live even when others make fun of them for being gay.

“No matter what age. No matter what gender. Love is love”. I love this quote because why should society control whom you love when it’s you choice. Lets not think about ourselves, but lets think about what’s going on with teens trying to kill themselves just because people are making fun of them. Lets help and find help for those people, that’s the kind of people we are.
