|Abstract:||Introduction: Studies report higher incidents of suicidal behaviors among sexual and gender minorities (SGMs). The higher prevalence of suicidal behaviors in this subpopulation makes it a significant matter to study. Qualitative sociological research on suicide attempts is scarce. Yet, it allows investigating the operating social dynamics that let some SGMs perceive their lives as not worth living over time. Goals and Methods: Building on Durkheim's theses from Le Suicide (1897), a social network perspective is applied to investigate suicide attempts among SGMs and how social relations matter to suicidality. Critical suicidology characterizes the approach and calls for a critical stance regarding methodology and theory. Qualitative ego-centric network analysis and biographical methods are combined as a reconstructive personal network analysis, and data are collected via individual interviews during two meetings (approx. 20 participants). A comparison between the social surroundings of SGMs with and without suicide attempts is pursued. Results (expected): Through the methodological approach combining two distinct qualitative methods, the analysis of the biographical experience is expanded by the question of embeddedness in social relations, whereby personal networks are understood as dynamic social relations that evolve through time. These two perspectives related to each other create a critical methodological approach that enables identifying and investigating the dynamics and mechanisms within and between different relationships of the social surrounding and how these link back to (suicidal) agency for SGMs. Conclusions: How social surroundings matter to individuals at risk of suicide must be of interest to research on suicidality. The presented methodological approach highlights how suicide attempts can be investigated as a relational social issue. Suicide prevention strategies can benefit from the findings of this study.|
