Alice Litman: Family pays tribute as inquest expected to look into delays to her receiving gender-affirming health care


The mother of a young transgender woman who took her own life has paid tribute at the inquest into her daughter’s death – describing her as “full of beauty and grace”.

Alice Litman died in May last year – she had spent almost three years on an NHS waiting list for gender affirming health care.

The inquest is expected to look into those delays – and why she was discharged from treatment for anxiety and depression when she turned 18.

We spoke to the family in this exclusive interview and this report does contain details which some viewers may find distressing.
