Gay discrimination is affects many people including today's youth.  "Suicide is the leading cause of death among gay and lesbian youths. Gay and lesbian youths are 2 to 6 times more likely to attempt suicide than heterosexual youth. Over 30% of all reported teen suicides each year are committed by gay and lesbian youths. . . . Gays and lesbians are at much higher risk than the heterosexual population for alcohol and drug abuse. Approximately 30% of both the lesbian and gay male populations have problems with alcohol. Gay and lesbian youth are at greater risk for school failure than heterosexual children. (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 1989, as cited in “Today’s Gay Youth,” n.d., n.p.)".  Also, many openly gay people experience discrimination in the workplace, nearly one in four LGBTQ+ employees report employment discrimination in the last five years.  This needs to stop because people shouldn't need to worry about being discriminated against for just being open about who they are.
