Join us for the opening of Still Here, a collection of photographs and art from gay and bisexual men affected by suicide.
Through their experiences and willingness to tell their stories, these men raise awareness about depression and suicide among the gay and bisexual male community. This powerful exhibit is intended to start a conversation about suicide as a means of lobbying for targeted suicide prevention programs for gay and bisexual men in British Columbia.
If you are unable to join us for the opening, please make sure to stop by the exhibit. Still Here will be running at Gallery Gachet from November 2 to 13 (open Wednesday to Sunday) 12 to 6 pm.
Refreshments will be served.
About Still Here
Still Here is a collection of narratives, photographs and art that were created as part of the Man-Up Against Suicide Project. We collected photos and narratives from 30 Canadian gay and bisexual men who previously struggled with suicide or who had lost someone to suicide. In sharing the perspectives of gay and bisexual men about suicide, this project aims to de-stigmatize men's mental illness and lobby targeted suicide prevention programs.
Still Here is made possible thanks to generous support from the Movember Foundation and the School of Nursing at the University of British Columbia. Still Here and Man-Up Against Suicide are projects the Men's Health Research program at the University of British Columbia.
