"In Memory of Brandy Martell," by Innosanto Nagara, 2012, for TransVision, an Award Winning Program and Resource for Transgender/Transsexual Women in Alameda County. The text reads:
On April 27, 2012, Brandy Martell, who worked as an outreach worker serving the transgender and transsexual community, was murdered by a man who had “become enraged and shot her when he realized she was trans.”
When society doesn’t provide space for people who are thought of as different, this is what happens. Especially to transgendered women of color.
3 trans people are killed every month.
It’s time to say ENOUGH!
