Black Trans* Lives Matter

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

In 2014 12 out of the 14 reported murders of trans* women of color were black. The murders of trans* women of color make up 67% of all murders against LGBT people. So far this year 4 black trans* women have killed in the United States. During this action we will remember murdered black trans* women like -Goddess Edwards who was found shot to death at a motel in Kentucky on January 9th. -Lami Beard who was found shot to death outside in Virginia on January 17th. -Ty Underwood who was found shot to death outside in Texas on January 26th. -Yazmin Vash Payne who was stabbed to death by her boyfriend in California on January 31st. Just as important we will protest to highlight the countless number of black trans* people who face problems like like poverty and homelessness, police violence, domestic violence, rape, denial of medical services, and other issues. Sadly enough many of these incidents go unreported. Please bring: -Food and water -Warm clothes -You story of survival as a black trans* person
