Anti-gay prejudice is bad for LGBT health

From the Advocate:
Gay, lesbian, and bisexual people who live in communities with high levels of antigay prejudice are more likely to have a life span that is 12 years shorter than their peers who are not discriminated against.
Of course, the anti-gays are all in favor of that.

Clearly, if you can leave, you should.  It's challenging enough to live our lives out and proud when we have the relentless news about whether we are worthy.  But at least in some places we have protections and rights.
