Turkish transgender woman commits suicide “I could not, did not allow !”
Eylül Cansın, 24 climbed on the railings of the Bosphorus Bridge and jumped to her death despite efforts by the police.
“I couldn’t because people did not let me”
“I could not. I could not because people did not allow me. I could not work. I wanted to do something [worthwhile] but I could not. They interfered with me a lot. They victimized me a lot. I leave everyone to their own Allah.”
Ms Cansın shared this video on Facebook just hours before her suicide:
“I was born in 1992. Now I’m 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 stuff, I couldn’t… You get me? They impeded with me many times; they made me suffer a lot. I leave everyone alone with God and now I’m going to the Bosphorus Bridge. Kisses to all, God bless you.”
Cansın 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.”
