How many gay men are dying in US malls?
2/2 Gay men in America have died in malls from drugs and alcohol in the last five years.
According to a new study, published in the American Journal of Public Health, and funded by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), that’s an average of six gay men per day die in the US.
That’s one every two hours.
In 2015, a study from the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN) found that more than half of gay men had used or attempted to use a substance that could be considered a drug in the previous 12 months.
In 2017, the study from GLAAD found that at least 1 in 5 gay men have used or tried alcohol, according to the Drug Policy Alliance.
A study from UCLA found that the prevalence of drug use among gay men in the United States has increased over the past decade, with an estimated 13.4 million gay men using illegal drugs in 2017.
“As the country grapples with the epidemic of opioid addiction, this new study shows that homophobia, a long-standing and pervasive social and economic disadvantage, continues to plague our communities,” said GLAad CEO Evan Greer.
“While the gay community’s numbers may not yet be the same as the general population, the numbers in this study are troubling, and they should be.
The gay community has historically had a hard time accessing health care, particularly when it comes to HIV, and these numbers suggest that many of our community members have been left behind.”
The new study also found that in 2017, nearly 30 percent of gay male college students had used illegal drugs.
The study also identified more than 700 gay men who had died from drug overdoses in the past year.
“For gay men, suicide is one of the most deadly forms of suicide and one of our most common causes of death,” said study co-author Jason Fagot, who works at the University of California, Los Angeles.
“The fact that so many gay and bisexual men have died from overdoses is devastating, but it also means we need to work on better ways to prevent and treat addiction, which is a complex issue that affects all of us.”
In 2018, a report from the American Academy of Pediatrics said that LGBT young people have been exposed to discrimination and violence.
“LGBT youth have been the fastest-growing demographic in our society, yet we are still at high risk for violence, sexual assault, and discrimination, and a lack of support and understanding from their peers and family,” said the report, which noted that more LGBT youth have experienced abuse than other racial, ethnic, or religious groups.
The report added that it was time to stop ignoring the issue and focusing on how to tackle the root causes of the issue.
The American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) defines mental illness as a mental disorder that affects a person’s capacity to reason, feel, or act normally, or that is manifested in persistent distress or impairment of social relationships.
In 2018 the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) released a report that showed that transgender people face a range of discrimination, including housing discrimination, workplace discrimination, health insurance discrimination, bullying, and harassment.
In the US, trans people make up about 3 percent of the US population, but account for nearly 12 percent of trans people who have attempted suicide.
The NCTE found that transgender women face the highest rates of unemployment, homelessness, and unemployment-related health problems.
NCTE Executive Director Andrea James said that the NCTE’s report is an important step towards ending discrimination against trans people.
“Transgender people are a visible part of our country and in our communities and it’s a shame that we’re not even being recognized for our unique abilities and achievements,” James said.
“NCTe’s report confirms that we deserve the same rights and opportunities that cisgender Americans enjoy.
We can’t wait for the Supreme Court to uphold the rights of trans Americans to live their lives the way they want to live it.”
The NCTe also published a report in March that said that transgender Americans are five times more likely to be victims of workplace discrimination than cisgender people.
According the report: “Transgendered women are more likely than cis women to be the victims of verbal harassment, sexual harassment, physical harassment, and stalking.
Transgender women also face the risk of being fired, fired from a job, and denied housing.
Transgender men are four times more at risk of discrimination based on sexual orientation, and four times as likely to have been subjected to an unwelcome sexual advance or verbal assault.
Transgender people are also more likely and likely to face violence and discrimination.”
“It’s clear that transgender lives matter, and that trans people are still living at higher rates of poverty, unemployment, and suicide than the general public.
We need to address this discrimination and ensure that trans lives matter too,” said NCTE
