    It sickens me that LGBT people have it so tough. I think transgender people have it even tougher than gay and lesbian people. This is not to speak lightly of the discrimination against gay and lesbian or bisexual people. It's just my observation that we often suffer in silence, or alone with very limited support in our lives. There are plenty of gay and lesbian social groups, community centers, nightclubs, etc. Only in the past few years has the transgender community been invited into many of these places. Even now we often feel out of place and many of you can attest that gay and lesbian people often don't understand us either. So, it's no surprise that our suicide rates are very high. Things are getting better. If you ever feel the despair that can lead to suicidal thoughts or actions please reach out to someone for help. Transgender life isn't easy but it's getting better. ~ Lori
