A Sad Story - Kayleigh Scott

If you know a trans person (and we all do) be sure today to tell them you love then, respect them and support them.  Never miss an opportunity - We never know when a  kind / supportive word is needed!



Kayleigh Scott - 25 years old 
Kayleigh Scott, a transgender flight attendant famous for appearing in a United Airlines commercial, is dead ... and it appears to be a suicide.

The 25-year-old was found dead Monday in her Denver, CO apartment ... the same day she posted on social media about planning to end her life.

In the Instagram post, Kayleigh wrote ... "As I take my final breaths and exit this living earth, I would like to apologize to everyone I let down. I am so sorry I could not be better. To those that I love, I am sorry I could not be stronger. To those that gave me their everything, I am sorry my effort was not reciprocated."

The post was flooded with comments from concerned fans, with many saying they were calling police in Denver to conduct a welfare check.

Kayleigh's post also continued ... 

Please understand that me leaving is not a reflection of you, but the result of my own inability to turn myself for the better. To Ashley, Cynthia, Regine & Sophia. I am so sorry. Please remember me for the good memories we have shared, and never for my downfall. I will see you all again on the other side."

Her sister, Ashley, commented on the IG post confirming Kayleigh's death.

Kayleigh famously shared her transition story in a 2020 United Airlines commercial for Trans Day of Visibility ... thanking the airline for helping her transition.

Police in Denver are investigating ... and the city's medical examiner will determine an official cause of death.

Kayleigh was 25.

  1. So Sad..... Paula G

  2. Being 25 is hard enough. Being different and rejected for it substantially more so.

  3. Such a heartbreaking story. Don't wait to tell people you love them or are thinking of them

  4. I am crying. Lisa P

  5. I read about this yesterday. Heartbreaking. The tears flowed.
    RIP Kayleigh
    I wish this would never happen.
    We love you

  6. My heart goes out to Kayleigh Scott.
    Whatever you do, dont 'give up'. Dont 'cash it in', or 'whatever euphemism you choose'.
    My 'main goal in life' was 'to to to college to find a career so as to 'not feel like a piece of 5 # ! +'. And guess what? That effort did not work.
    When I was a child-- the consensus opinion was 'children dont get depressed'. Wrong.
    I am almost 70 years old, and it has taken me over 64 years (age 6-- when I knew' that 'something' was 'wrong') to overcome 'issues' of 'self shame, 'abuse', 'depression', and 'dysphoria', coincident food allergies that inflame the brain, ect.. There is no such 'single' reason for 'mental health' (specifically 'anxiety disorders'/'depression') issues.
    I have been to various REAL therapists, and was prescribed various prescribed drugs, as well as personal research/study into the basics of psychology as well as 'self' EMDR.
    A lot of these efforts failed to be successful. However, without all of these efforts, I would not have succeeded. Just dont give up.
    My mind is clear and calm and focused. The inside of my head/brain no longer 'hurts' and I know who I am for the first time in 64 years.
    Wishing all of you the best.
