Teen Suicide LGBT SD BY Gia & Laura Discrimination is a big obstacle that people who identify as LGBT have to face when coming out. We Are Stopping It Religious People Teens who are LGBT are about 4 times more likely to commit suicide than straight people.
Teens usually commit suicide because of bullies, harassment, and/or discrimination.
Suicide is the most common way of death among LGBT teens.
In 2007 about 4,00 people 15-24 committed suicide.
