Daphne Dorman, one of the most influential transgender activists in the LGBTQ community, has recently passed away after allegedly taking her own life.


On Friday, the 44-year-old took to her Facebook page to leave a message saying goodbye to all her friends and family, asking them to remember her in "better times and better light."

Dorman also took the opportunity to ask her loved ones to help her daughter, Naia, and to remind her that her mother loved her with every fiber of her being.



According to Dorman, who shared a photo of herself with Naia and a picture saying "So long and thank you for all the fish," she struggled to find the right way to say goodbye.


She wrote:

"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 feel like I failed you: I did and I'm sorry and I hope you'll remember me in better times and better light."



So far, it is yet unknown what drove Dorman, who reportedly volunteered at the San Francisco LGBT Center as an instructor for Transcode, to take her own life.

The mother-of-one was in show business as an actress for 12 years, taught improvisation at The Actors Center of Philadelphia and worked as Senior Software Engineer for Vineti, LLC until recently.

The late comedian was also mentioned by Dave Chappelle during his controversial special "Sticks and Stones," which was blasted for being "anti-trans" and offensive.
