Court hears how transgender woman killed herself after being taunted in street

Scrabble champion Mikki Nicholson told 
psychiatric nurse she felt 'stigmatised'
A transgender woman who was a national Scrabble champion took her own life after receiving abuse for being different, an inquest has heard.

Mikki Nicholson, 36, told a psychiatric nurse that she “felt stigmatised” for being transgender and was being taunted in the street. She wanted to leave Carlisle where she was living because she hoped she would be less abused elsewhere, but had recently discovered that she would risk homelessness by moving.
