Trigger Warning: Suicide and depression.

This week’s tragic news about the death of transgender teen, Leelah Alcorn, and the Tumblr note that followed, has brought me to tears. Losing lives, especially young lives, to hopelessness, always feels so preventable.

Marc Lombardi, editor at Grayhaven Comics, is offering a free PDF copy of YOU ARE NOT ALONE to members of the LGBTQ community who may feel similarly alone and without hope.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE coverYOU ARE NOT ALONE is a 180 page anti-bullying anthology project released in January 2014, aimed  towards younger people. It features stories about abuse, bullying, depression, homophobia, racism, and violence, told with a message of hope, along with information and resources.

If you need someone to talk to, these hotlines are here for you. Please reach out.
