Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover and Teen Suicide

It has been 10 days since, Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover, hung himself in Massachusetts after enduring daily anti-gay bullying. Lesbian and Gay teens are nine times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers. These kind of tragedies cannot be allowed to persist. The goal of States of Union is to show LGBT youth – and indeed all Americans – that LGBT families, couples, and loves are no different from heterosexual ones and deserve the same love, support, and admiration.
