As we mourn the loss of our trans sisters, Ms. Edwards, Ty Underwood, and Lamia Beard, we celebrate this monumental win.
Just as we posted about the murder of our trans sister Ty Underwood, we learned that yet another Black transgender woman has been killed this month.
Ty Underwood, a 24-year-old Black transgender woman, was fatally shot early Monday morning in North Tyler, Texas. Underwood is the second Black transgender woman reportedly killed this year. Her murder comes just within nine days of Lamia Beard who was killed on January 17 in Norfolk, Virginia.
Lamia Beard, a 30-year-old Black trans woman, was recently murdered in Norfolk, Virginia. Rest in power, Lamia. #AllBlackLivesMatter
