This study explores the recent research into same-sex attracted youth suicide & rural youth suicide, which suggests there may be an association between the 2. While contributing issues to rural same-sex attracted youth suicide, such as homophobia, isolation, availability of information, & acknowledgement of issues are discussed, little hard evidence is found to support the rural & same-sex attracted youth suicide connection. Further & on-going research is recommended into this topic. (LC) (16 refs)
