In her diary, Frida wrote that “azul = distancia, electricidad, la pureza amor.” Blue = distance, electricity, pure love. The bright blue paint coating the interior walls of this house and studio, located in the Mexico City neighborhood of Coyoacán, encircles the space in an almost heavenly glow. In the middle of the loop of blue rooms sits a garden with a courtyard packed with potted plants…

Margaret Cho (she/her) How do your identities and their intersections shape who you are and/or impact your own mental health? My…

What 988 Means For LGBTQ Young People

After years of planning, advocating and communicating, 988, the new three-digit code for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, went live today. As of today, people across the country can dial 9-8-8 if they are experiencing a mental or behavioral health emergency and connect to the help they need.

This will hopefully make accessing mental health crisis services easier for those in need, and The Trevor Project is…
