FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
StandUP & StandOUT Productions sends out
National Tour to End LGBTQ Youth Suicide
NJ, USA, December 20, 2014 – standUP & standOUT productions will send out Pandora
Scooter and her show I AM ENOUGH, which is about suicide prevention and self-confidence
building for LGBTQ youth. The tour will cover approximately 45 cities in 17 states, often
stopping multiple times in one state.
According to statistics from the Center for Disease Control and The Trevor Project (a national
LGBTQ suicide hotline) it is apparent that we lose two (2) to five (5) LGBT youth every day to
suicide. “This is an epidemic,” says Scooter, “And I decided I had to do something about it.”
What she is doing is touring the country with her one woman show I AM ENOUGH, which is
about suicide prevention and self-confidence building for LGBTQ youth. The show is inspired
by the thousands of LGBTQ youth (ages 10-24) who kill themselves every year. I AM
ENOUGH aims to help bring that number down to zero.
The letters LGBTQ represent the different orientations that make up the Queer Community. “L”
stands for Lesbian, “G” stands for Gay, “B” stands for Bisexual, “T” stands for Transgender and
and “Q” stands for Queer and Questioning. There are nearly 8 million LGBT youth in the United
States and they are disproportionately plagued with suicidal ideation and attempts, compared to
their straight peers.
Pandora Scooter’s show I AM ENOUGH follows the story of Pan, who struggles with rejection
from her parents and friends, for being gay and for being different. After attempting suicide, Pan
finds herself in a hospital where, with the help of an fantastic counselor and her inner strength,
she realizes she wants to live, thrive and that she is enough.
