Chrissi died by suicide. She was a volunteer for Trans Pride Brighton and My Genderation as well as running the Tumblr Trans Teen Survival Guide.

Her loss leaves us all so very much poorer.

"Everyone at Trans Pride Brighton is devastated to hear about the passing of our long time volunteer and much loved friend, Christina. Our thoughts and deepest condolences go out to her partner, family and friends.

"We are so proud to have known this inspiring woman and eternally thankful for the effort she put in for our community. Rest in power. x

"If you are feeling low or suicidal, please reach out to someone. You are loved and you are not alone."
