16-year-old TikToker Brianna Ghey was a British transgender girl from Birchwood in Warrington, who was found dead in Culcheth Linear Park around 3:13 PM on Saturday. Brianna Ghey studies at Birchwood community high school.
She was a very brave and kind-hearted girl who would help her younger transgender girls get safe supplies of hormone replacement therapy. According to her friends, she faced a lot of consistent transphobic bullying but got no help from her school or the police.
Not just in her school, she also faced a lot of bullying in her TikToks and all her social media accounts just for being transgender.
