I am going sober for October and I am asking people to sponsor me to show how supportive they are that I can get through October without any alcohol. All the money I raise will go to The Rainbow Project, which will be used to support the LGBT coummunity of Northern Ireland. Did you know:
LGBT people in NI are three times as likely as the general population to use illegal substances
LGBT people are approximately twice as likely as the Northern Ireland population to drink daily or most days
Drugs and alcohol contributed to 30% of LGB&T people thinking about suicide (suicidal ideation) and 13% attempting suicide.
Drugs and alcohol have contributed to 44% of LGB&T people having unprotected sex
