A 16-year-old transgender teen who talked about being the victim of bullying at school has killed herself.

The North County LGBTQ Resource Center on Thursday held a memorial for Taylor Alesana.

“Taylor had many friends here at the Center but the support she received was not enough to counter the very difficult time she had at Fallbrook High School,” the group said. “As a transgender teen she was constantly picked upon, bullied and attacked by her peers. With few adults to turn to, and with no support from her school, her life became too difficult.”

“Taylor was a beautiful and courageous girl, and all she wanted was acceptance.”

In a video posted on YouTube.com, Alesana discussed her family's recent move to Fallbrook, located 70 miles north of San Diego, where she said she was “living my life as a girl now.”

“I made a couple [friends], went from group to group,” she said. “The group would usually kick me out after they realized, 'Oh, you're different. We can't have you hanging out with us.'”

Max Disposti, executive director of the North County LGBTQ Resource Center, said that Alesana was supportive of others during group meetings.

“She was very outspoken and had incredibly positive energy. She was helping others as she was struggling,” Disposti told the AP.
