Gay-Straight Alliances help decrease teen suicide

Gay Straight Alliance logoBY MINDY TOWNSEND

if I remember correctly, being a teenager is hard. I found that cloaking yourself in ironic detachment helped, but still. People can be jerks and it can be hard to just be yourself.

I felt this way, and I’m a straight, cis, middle class, white girl from the Midwest. I can’t even begin to fathom what it must be like for kids who are somehow different from the average. I’m not sure I could have coped on my own.
