“The other day Kelly, an OUTreach youth said: ‘I’m so glad I failed at suicide, because life is amazing.’
“It’s incredible how Ogden and Utah has been changing, how minds and hearts are opening to LGBT youth and keeping them safe. Maybe one day, the Kellys of the community won’t even think of suicide; they will always know that they are loved, and that life is amazing.”
