Melbourne’s queer community is hard at work to support those impacted by suicides, as families grieve those lost


Bridget Flack’s family remembers her as bright and creative. “She was incredibly artistic, you know, whether drawing or writing or playing music, she loved all of that,” Angela Pucci Love, Bridget’s older sister, said. She loved being surrounded by friends and going for long walks. “She would walk for hours upon hours, just pick a direction and go, I suppose that was like her quiet time, time to think,” Ms Pucci Love said. Bridget was politically engaged. She studied social sciences at university and went on to work in the union movement while being involved in social activism in her own time.
