Transgender teen committed suicide - Suicide and transgender hotlines included

http://www.11alive.com/story/news/na...hing/21059923/

This story is so sad yet happens pretty often, not just among the GLBT community. I wish everyone, especially parents, would be more tolerant if their child grows up different than what they hoped for/wanted.

RIP Leelah Alcorn


If you or someone you care about needs help, there's help out there if you're transgender and/or if you're suicidal.

Thanks Jen, these are great resources. This story breaks my heart but you are right it happens too often. Hopefully this sparks dialogue and change for the better.
