To make any change because of suicide will undoubtedly create differences in finances/whatever. I don't know what the OP has in mind, but I don't think gay suicides should be given special attention over straight suicides. All suicide is equally sad.

afaict, nimh doesn't track sexual orientation of suicides and suicide attempts
I may be wrong.
"And in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness."
I think that this only shows why we need to create strict rules and enforce them when it comes to bullying, especially when it comes to matters such as these. I think that there should be an open network of parents, teachers, and school counselors which a kid can come to and talk about their problems.
What do you mean by: "how do you think we can attempt to curb the amount, if not completely end, teen suicides, especially among those of the LGBT community?"
Obviously, you seem to think something should be done, when nothing really needs to be done because all suicide is a tragedy. I dislike playing careful games of cat and mouse. Tell me why you think gay suicides are more important? Obviously, if you did NOT think gay suicides more important, then you would not create this thread about curbing gay suicides among the LGBT community.
It's simple. Tell us what you think and why.
If there's a god, damn it she won't mind.
If there's a god, baby she won't mind.
