PRIDE LIVES suicide prevention

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

The LGBTQ community is sadly no stranger to hearing that one of our own has died by suicide. From youth to seniors in our community, the rate at which some LGBTQ people have fallen victim to suicide is disproportionate to that of our straight counterparts. And we know that attempts at suicide are particularly high among the Transgender population especially. Despite a number of campaigns aimed at curbing these tragedies the death rate does not show any signs of subsiding. However, a coalition of local organizations and businesses plan to launch a program this weekend that takes aim at suicide prevention to let people who might be suffering from depression and thoughts of suicide know that there are resources and that they are not alone.

Pride Lives is scheduled to take place Saturday, November 14 at 2 p.m.

`'Volunteers will walk Capitol Hill with suicide prevention materials we've designed,' said the group on their official Facebook page, www.facebook.com/PrideLives. 'We'll start at the Cuff Complex (1533 13th Ave.) and walk across the Hill visiting businesses and giving them signs and handouts to display. This gets needed resource info out to the public right in the spaces where we live and play.'

The coalition behind the project is made up of the LGBTQ community's leather scene: Seattle Pups and Handlers (SEA-PAH), Washington State Mr. & Ms. Leather Organization (WSMLO), Seattle Men in Leather (SML), Seattle Girls of Leather (SgoL), Seattle Boys of Leather (SBOL), The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, the Abbey of Saint Joan, Seattle Women in Leather (SWL), and the Cuff Complex (where the after-party will be held).
