A few weeks ago, we found out an enthusiastic volunteer named Shawn, who we met during our photo shoot last March at the LikeMe Lighthouse-Kansas City, had tragically taken his life. Shawn was an active member his community whose NOH8 photo remains his Facebook profile photo even today. We honor his memory by featuring his photo today.

If you or anybody you know might be considering hurting themselves, please know that there is ALWAYS someone who cares about you that is willing to listen and talk to you. You can call the The Trevor Project’s Suicide Prevention Lifeline 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week, at 866-488-7386.
