A 17-year-old trans teen named Okyanus Efe Ozyavuz committed suicide in the western city of Izmir yesterday. Having won kick box championships both in Izmir and in the region, Ozyavuz shared a note on his Facebook account which reads “What’s the fucking use of being normal?”
 
Noticing that Ozyavuz hung himself from his apartment balcony, the neighbors broke in and cut the rope.
