“Suicide is a topic that needs to be discussed in the light of day, maybe even while sitting at the table with friends over coffee. It shouldn’t be hushed. Let’s start more conversations, even if they scare us. When we do this, we need to move the conversation away from hypermasculinity and understandings given to us by our patriarchal, cisnormative society.”
