Daphne Dorman, a transgender comedienne, and activist has died from an apparent suicide after she posted a final message to Facebook saying goodbye to her loved ones.

Daphne, 44, who inspired countless people with her strength and got referenced in Dave Chapelle’s ‘anti-trans’ Netflix special was found dead on Friday, October 11,  2019, in San Francisco, California. 

In the heartbreaking post, she accompanied with a shot of herself with her name and the dates 30 April 1975-11 October 2019.

‘I’m sorry. I’ve thought about this a lot before this morning. How do you say “goodbye” and “I’m sorry” and “I love you” to all the beautiful souls you know? For the last time,’ she wrote in her last message, posted on Friday. 

‘There’s no good way. That’s what I got out of all that thought.’‘To those of you who are mad at me: please forgive me. To those of you who wonder if you failed me: you didn’t. To those of you who feel like I failed you: I did and I’m sorry and I hope you’ll remember me in better times and better light.’ 

‘I love you all. I’m sorry. Please help my daughter, Naia, understand that none of this is her fault. Please remind her that I loved her with every fiber of my being.’

She was later found dead…

The Office Of Transgender Initiatives in San Francisco also confirmed Dorman’s death on its Twitter account and offered counselling for anyone who needed help.
