It's no wonder the suicide rate is so high:
28 – percentage of transgender or nonbinary youth who attempted suicide who reported they had been subjected to so-called “conversion therapy.”
78 – percentage of transgender or nonbinary youth who reported that they were under the age of 18 when they were subjected to “conversion therapy.”
40 – percentage of transgender or nonbinary youth who reported being physically threatened or harmed due to their gender identity.
50 – percentage of transgender or nonbinary youth who reported being kicked out of their homes.
