An estimated thirty percent of all transgender and gender non-conforming adolescents ages 11 through 18 report having attempted suicide at least once in their lives. As my senior thesis project, I created an animated suicide prevention campaign with the aim of empowering and uplifting this community to lessen suicide risk, focusing on identity, resilience, and reaching out for help. The campaign is called Be. I have also created an accompanying website that can be viewed at: betoday.org.
