The 48 percent


It is difficult for me to conceive of 48 percent of all LGBTQ San Luis Obispo County middle school and high school students having seriously considering suicide at some point this year (compared to 14 percent of their heterosexual peers). Thank you to Central Coast Coalition for Inclusive Schools for bringing this to our community's attention through the full-page ad on page 3 of your Pride edition (June 29). Let's all figure out how we can join county Behavioral Health and CCC4IS in addressing this crisis, because "pride is not always a party for SLO County LGBTQ youth."
