Gay Times "The flag we shouldn't be proud of" by The Gate London

Creatives at The Gate London came up with a campaign for World Suicide Prevention Day (10 September) that reveals the shocking scale of mental health issues among LGBTQ+ young people.

Running on Gay Times' channels and fronted by Years & Years lead singer Olly Alexander, the campaign shows two of the six stripes on the Pride flag ripped to highlight how one third of LGBTQ+ young people have attempted suicide. The work was created by John Osborne and Rickie Marsden.
