While sometimes death seems like the only escape I can only hope that people considering it to look around at the people wearing purple today. In or out, left or right, conservative or liberal these people can be a home for LGBT youth. I have criticized the gay community in the past for being vapid, judgemental and overly segregated but what I have never talked about is the positive. The community really has provided a home and shelter for me to grow into a person I like far more than in my closeted youth. Home is possible it may just take a while for a person to find it.
Your allies are waiting for you. Today they are probably in purple.
