Transphobes Are Still Murdering Black Trans Women

This is one of those things I'm going to be reminding my fellow cis people of periodically.

Three Young, Transgender Women Were Killed In The Past Week

19 trans people have been murdered this year, and 13 of them have been black. Three of them have been in Jacksonville, Florida, so any black trans women in the area should be extremely cautious.

Last year, 21 trans people had been murdered by September 10. So we're actually doing slightly better, but any anti-trans hate crimes are unacceptable. It's also alarming that so many of these people are women and so many are black women.

We cis and white people need to be vigilant against any transphobia, and especially transmisogynoir, that we come across. Don't stop until the murders stop.
