Half of the transgender male teenagers have committed suicide, find research

Approximately half of the transgender teens who identify themselves as men but who have assigned a female gender at birth have tried to commit suicide at least once, according to the study. And 42 percent of adolescents who do not identify exclusively as men or women have taken at least one previous suicide attempt.

About 30 percent of trans-female teenagers – who identify as women but have birth certificates that label them as a man – have pleaded suicide at least once, just like 28 percent of adolescents who have doubts about their gender identity, discovered study too.
