Yet another suicide

On Wednesday, September 29, 2010, Raymond Chase, a gay sophomore at Johnson & Wales College in Providence, RI, hanged himself in his dorm room.

Unlike the other young men who committed suicide this month, Raymond Chase was African American. I will blog on Mr. Chase’s passing later this weekend, but for now, I really need to sit back and think.

We MUST reach out to our queer youth, let them know we love them, and that it gets better.
