At the age of 21, Caitlin Kirkaldy, from Toowoomba in Queensland, Australia, was found dead in her bedroom last Thursday, August 8.
Bron Kirkaldy, her mother, spoke to Daily Mail Australia about the tragic death.
“I remember her sitting on my lap and crying when she was in Year 9, saying ‘I don’t think I like boys’,” the devastated mother said.
“We said that was absolutely fine, but I think she really struggled with her sexuality. She was bullied at school for being gay, and she was desperate to be loved. Of course, we loved her, but I think she really wanted a relationship.”
