“Still Here” exhibits art from queer people affected by suicide.

Despite leaps and bounds made in the name of equality, queer youth are still nearly five times more likely to attempt suicide than their straight cohort.

Still Here, which opens today at UBC, is a collection of photographs and art from queer people affected by suicide and its aftermath. A project from the Men’s Health Research program at the University of British Columbia, the exhibit intends to break the silence around the topic and promote the need for targeted suicide prevention programs for queer people.

As in the past, when it comes to queer suicide, silence = death.
