I just finished reading the suicide note from Leelah Alcorn and I think everyone should read it. She was a young girl who had to face intense pressure from her family and the society because she was a transgender.
I hope her death won’t go in vain. This tragedy should wake us up and help create a more accepting society. We all need someone who love and cares for us. Who accepts you for who you are and gives us the opportunity to grow and get to know ourselves. Most western societies are more open than ever to gays and lesbians. But very little has changed for transgenders, Lets not just hope for change, lets start by getting to know transgenders in your community.
