America is a free country, so the rights of the LGBT community should be respected
Multiple celebrities are coming out and they are still loved by many fans, yet LGBT citizens are looked down upon by their peers and communities
Our mission as the LGBT KAYLT group is to raise awareness for the LGBT youth in regards to suicide and bullying. Our goal is to help people understand the struggles of being part of the LGBT community even if they do not directly support the group. We want LGBT youth members to have the same opportunities as heterosexual individuals and not feel excluded from society.
LGBT youth is four times more likely to attempt suicide than straight youth.
Half of young transgender people have thoughts of suicide
LGBT members of opposing families are 8.4 times more likely to attempt suicide.
LGBT youth members that have non-supportive family members often are left homeless.
These homeless individuals are exposed to more violence, abuse, and exploitation than their straight peers.
40% of homeless youth served by agencies are LGBT.
30% of clients using housing programs are identified as LGBT.
