Trans woman ended her life in Istanbul: I couldn’t, they didn’t let me Kaos GL - News Portal for LGBTI+
A trans woman named Eylul Cansin committed suicide in Istanbul by jumping off the Bosphorus Bridge the night before.
 
Born in 1992, Eylul Cansin ended her life by jumping off the Bosphorus Bridge on Saturday night. Cansin left a suicide note video, saying “many people were my friends but they turned out not to be my friends. I couldn’t do anymore, that’s what I’ve learned. I’m doing the thing everyone wants [me to do].”
 
“I couldn’t because people did not let me”
 
“I was born in 1992. Now I must be 24 and I’m ending my 24 years. Kisses to everyone. I couldn’t. I couldn’t because people did not let me. I couldn’t work, I wanted to do some stuff, I couldn’t... You get me? They impeded me many times; they made me suffer a lot. I leave everyone stew and now I’m going to the Bosphorus Bridge. Kisses to all, God bless you.”

Cansin wanted her mother to take care of her little dog at her place, resulting in a huge despair in social media by her words: “Whenever you look at it, remember only me and don’t give it to anyone else. When you see it, say ‘this is my child’. Don’t get angry at it.”  
 
Suicide of LGBT people is a social issue
 
In July, a trans boy named Okyanus Efe Ozyavuz in Izmir; in August a trans activist named Figen in Mersin and in November an Iranian gay refugee in Denizli ended their lives. Experts underline that discrimination causes serious mental health problems.
