Highway Adopted in Honor of Leelah Alcorn

[TRIGGER WARNING: SUICIDE, TRANSPHOBIA, MISGENDERING]

If you've forgotten, Leelah Alcorn was a transgender teen who took her own life after years of hiding and being misgendered by her parents and the usual fucker that trans people have to put up with in our shit society.

After she died, her shit parents continued to misgender her, burying her in a man's suit and using her birth name. They got her Tumblr account deleted and basically did all they could to erase the memory of who she really was.

Now, on Interstate 71 near the South Lebanon exit, you can see a sign that says "In Memory of Leelah Alcorn." Her real name is memorialized on that sign and her transmisogynistic parents can't erase that.

You can read more information and thank the community of people who made this possible on their Facebook page.
