Out of Japan’s LGBTQ teens, 48.1% thought about committing suicide over the past year and 14% made an attempt, according to a recent survey by a nonprofit organization. Both proportions were higher than those for LGBTQ people in their 20s to 30s in the same survey said the Tokyo NPO, ReBit. “LGBTQ people need stress-free places where they can talk about their sexuality,” said Mika Yakushi, 33, ReBit’s representative director.
