Suicide is the second leading cause of death among teenagers and young adults aged between 10 and 34 in the US.
More than half (51 percent) of trans male teenagers have attempted suicide in the past year, according to new research from the University of Arizona.
42 percent of non-binary adolescents & 30 percent of trans female teens had attempted suicide, according to the study.
Overall, 28 percent of teenagers questioning their gender identity had tried to take their own life.
Trans & non-binary teens—aged between 11 and 19—are at a significantly greater risk of attempting suicide than their peers who are cisgender.
They also face a significantly higher risk of homelessness or home instability when rejected by family.
For comparison: 18% of cis female teens & 10% of cis male teens had tried to end their lives. Compare that with 30% of trans female teens, 42% of non-binary teens and 51% of trans male teens who attempted suicide.
Survey data was from 2012-2015 (in part when it was debatably better for trans kids in public schools due to some federal protections)
