Cyndi Lauper Give a Damn & Save a Gay Youth

Pop Star and Gay activist has created a new video with a few of her friends to bring to the fore front the issues that gay youth have to deal with on a daily basis. Gay youth have a much higher rate of suicide, depression and isolation than their contemporaries.

According to RadarOnline:
“Many gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth struggle to come to terms with their sexual orientation or gender identity, while also seeking the acceptance of their family and friends. Sadly, too often they end up feeling so alone and rejected that ending their life seems like their only escape.
Throughout September, we are calling attention to the alarming epidemic of suicide amongst gay and transgender youth. Suicide is already the third-leading cause of death for young people ages 10 to 24, and it turns out that gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth are actually 4 times more likely to attempt it than their straight peers.”
