About this Episode

LGBTQ+ youth are at increased risk of suicide and violent crime. Teenage years can be difficult for everyone, but for lgbtq youth they can be especially dangerous. Why is that the case though? Well, our attitudes and beliefs about LGBTQ+ people are part of the problem.

This is Episode 5 of the What Would It Take Podcast. Join me as I ask What Would It Take Love to Conquer All?
