Leelah Alcorn was an American transgender teenager from King's Mills, Ohio who gained international notoriety when she committed suicide on December 28th, 2014 by walking out in front of traffic on the Interstate 79 highway. In the lead up to her suicide, she posted a note on her Tumblr blog, citing depression and her parents' rejection of her status as being transgender the main reasons why she committed suicide.
On January 6th, 2015, her blog along with her suicide note post had been removed from Tumblr upon her parents' request. As it stands, supporters of Leelah have archived her suicide note and a couple selfies and drawings done by her in the form of screencaps. However, the rest of the content from her blog, including posts leading up to her suicide note, were seemingly lost.
On April 24th, 2015, shortly after this page was posted, MithrandirAgain has supplied multiple archives of her blog. Thanks! (WARNING: This page contains graphic imagery reblogged by her shortly before her suicide note.) https://web.archive.org/web/20141231022058/https://lazerprincess.tumblr.com/ https://archive.org/details/archive.lazerprincess.2015.01.02/
