Please light another candle tonight for all of those gay Mormons who have taken their own lives. I am deeply saddened by the gay Mormon suicides this month (apparently there were three), and I feel a sense of failure for their losses even though I didn’t know them. Could I have made myself and my story more accessible? Could I have offered them hope, or solace, or peace?
Let’s work hard to create a future where death is never more desirable than life for our gay Mormon brothers and sisters.
