April 2015

Taylor had many friends at the North County LGBTQ Resource Center but the support she received was not enough to counter the very difficult time she had at Fallbrook High School.

As a transgender teen she was constantly picked upon, bullied and attack 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.

Our trans youth are the primary target of bullying, and the desperation that it causes is literally killing their hope for a bettertomorrow. Kids can be cruel, but hate is a learned behavior. Schools that are not visibly supportive of our LGBTQI youth and do not take active steps to educate about gender identity and sexual orientation are inevitably fostering the homophobes and transphobes of tomorrow.

Please, let’s make sure that our most recent losses are not in vain. We can do much better than this. Sage David and Taylor Alesana, we love you, and you will be missed forever.
