In this paper it is reported that 3 out of 8 suicide attempters in the Bagley(1994) sample are gay or bisexual. A further analysis of the data has revealed that 5 out of 8 suicide attempters are in this category. Therefore, 62.5% of suicide attempters are GB males, not 37.5%. and they are 13.6-times more likely to have attempted suicide than their heterosexual counterparts. A paper related to gay demographics and suicide-related problems is being written by Dr. Chris Bagley and Pierre Tremblay. (January 8, 1996.)
