Monthly meeting: Kate Bornstein’s “Hello Cruel World: 101 Alternatives to Suicide”

September 27, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Topic: Book discussion.  Kate Bornstein’s “Hello Cruel World: 101 Alternatives to Suicide for Teens, Freaks and Other Outlaws”

 

Description:

Are you ready to discuss Kate Bornstein’s book “Hello Cruel World: 101 Alternatives to Suicide for Teens, Freaks and Other Outlaws?” We are! Bring your copy and ideas along to this meeting to talk about alternatives to suicide, building a wider range of skills to combat depression and suicidal thoughts, and helping each other stay alive through Kate’s only directive of “Don’t be mean.”   (You don’t need to have read the book to participate.)

Legendary Kate Bornstein directly addresses the often daunting and prevalent reality of suicidal thoughts and actions within trans and queer communities. Through her typical bold, intense, and playful style, Kate offers unconventional alternatives to suicide in her book “Hello Cruel World: 101 Alternatives to Suicide for Teens, Freaks and Other Outlaws.”

Don’t be fooled by the book’s title! This book has content and concepts for people of all ages, as well as for those who don’t identify as ‘freaks’ or ‘outlaws.’   The book can be read cover to cover, as a reference, and as a reminder of numerous choices we all have other than suicide.
