‘Leelah’ Alcorn was a 17 year old transgender youth who committed suicide on December 27, 2014, by ending her life in front of a semi-truck while walking on a highway. Before walking out, she wrote a note on her Tumblr profile: “My death needs to be counted in the number of transgender people who commit suicide this year. I want someone to look at that number and say ‘that’s fucked up’ and fix it. Fix society. Please”. The transgender youth claimed to have been forced by her parents to attend conversion therapy, she was pulled out of school and isolated. Conversion therapies and brainwash techniques are very harmful for youth and should be banned with a proper legislation.
