TRIGGER WARNING: A powerful new music video by Logic highlights LGBT suicide in teenagers.

The song, 1-800-273-8255, is a strong anthem for suicide prevention and highlights struggles LGBT people face when they come out in high school.

It features the life of a boy who grows up and discovers he’s gay. When his parents find out, they kick him out of his home and he stays with a friend.

Then when his friend’s dad catches them in bed together, he’s kicked out again.

The moving video is accompanied by powerful lyrics: ‘I don’t wanna be alive, I just wanna die and let me tell you why.’

Then the chorus shifts: ‘I want you to be alive, you don’t gotta die. Now lemme tell you why.’

Logic’s powerful video shows graphic imagery of the boy holding a gun contemplating suicide.

Through love and support of a teacher and through the suicide prevention hotline, the boy overcomes his depression.

A montage of the rest of his life ensues, with moving images of the boy marrying his husband and starting a family.

1-800-273-8255 is the number to the U.S. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
