CRUSH is a group of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people that want to help our community members live longer and healthier by encouraging them to live smokefree. On average, non-smokers live 10 years longer than smokers. While only 20% of American adults smoke tobacco, over 40% of LGBT adults smoke. Smoking leads to more deaths in our community than AIDS, alcohol, car accidents, murder, suicide, drugs and fires combined. Can you imagine what an LGBT activist, scientist, author, or entertainer could do with 10 more years? What about spending 10 more years with the person you love? These military boys figured it out. But what about the rest of the LGBT community? Help us spread the word and encourage the entire LGBT community to live longer, happier and healthier.
