Story – From Blood Red to Noble Purple

The muggy air embraced them as they stepped beyond the clamourous din of the club; the rhythm of the music continued from somewhere behind them as they stumbled toward the road. Around them, clouds of cigarette smoke looped in strands and swirls like the silky ribbons on a young girl's new Sunday dress: innocent and elegant in their light-hearted parade. The scent of newly-lit weed accompanied the tobacco's stale odour, mingling and blending with the smell of alcohol.


How can I help my friend with suicidal ideas?

Hello. It happens quite often that I have to cheer up someone who's depressed or even suicidal because of his/her sexual orientation. I wouldn't consider myself the best person for these kinds of things, and at times, I wonder if I really helped them or if I actually made matters worse... What can one do or say to someone who is not comfortable in their skin with respect to his/her sexuality as a gay man or as a lesbian, especially if they/re suicidal? Thanks so much.
