United Airlines trans flight attendant featured in ad died by suicide: ‘Sorry I could not be stronger’

Kayleigh Scott posted a suicide note on Instagram and Facebook around 2:30 a.m.

Kayleigh Scott was featured in a United Airlines ad on transgender Day of visibility in 2020. In the ad, Scott talked about the transition and credited United Airlines for changing their life:

“My life changed for the better when I came to United as a flight attendant. With the support from the company, our business resource group for LGBTQ+ employees, and all of my loving co-workers. I was able to break free from the chains that helped me and to this day, I’m living confidently. It’s my true self.”

Kayleigh Scott posted a suicide note on Instagram, where prior posts revealed Scott struggling. In December of last year a post read: “2022 has been a year packed with upset and difficulty. I saw too much death & loss in my life, I came to realize I work a meaningless job for a company that doesn’t value me as an employee, I had my heart destroyed, I lost my nice little home and had to downsize significantly and start over. I’m really struggling to find happiness and hope. I’m begging 2023 to be better to me. Please.”

A spokesperson for United Airlines said to the New York Post “We are incredibly saddened by the tragic loss of Kayleigh Scott and extend our deepest condolences to her family, friends and co-workers.”

A spokesperson for the Denver Police Department said that an investigation is ongoing and that the final determination of the cause of death will be made by the Denver Medical Examiner’s office.
