I am surprised this had never been part of the public discourse of LGBT rights and discrimination: Politicians’ anti-gay policies and homophobic speech can play a role in the suicides of LGBT people, according to one of the world’s leading psychiatrists.

Of course it adds to the problem of LGBTI suicide rates.    I've argued this point countless times with the "it's a mental illness" crowd.

It has been in the discourse for decades. It just gets lost through time.

Let's not ignore how sexist and racist BuzzFeed is.
