The stats about deaths of LGBTQ men and women come from the discredited research of Paul Cameron. He based his research on obits in gay newspapers in the 80's at the height of the AIDS epidemic. Keep in mind that these obits would normally include only younger "out" men and women, a large number of whom would have been victims of HIV/AIDS. More often than not, older, closeted, or even just more private individuals' obits would not have made it to the pages of gay papers. Anyone with a vaguely scientific mind can see how using this sampling will result in skewed results.

@12 Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because the people were inhospitable to strangers. This sounds more like the radical right than we queers who tend to welcome the least among us.
