New Report: 226 Trans People murdered this year

This is so disheartening to hear, folks.

In the last 12 months, 226 Trans people have suffered horrible deaths! Some have been stoned to death, burned alive and had their eyes plucked out. According to GayStarNews, 11 of the victims were 18 years old or younger.

Here are some stories:

A 21-year-old trans woman, known only as Glenda, was beaten and stoned. Her half naked body was found weeks after her death in a Mexican waste land.

Suman Singh, a 20-year-old Indian, was set on fire by four people in January, dying from the injuries in hospital.

A Brazilian trans woman, known only as NN, was reported dead in August. Local newspapers reported she was found 'without eyes'.

And Alex, an eight-year-old from Rio De Janiero, told her dad she was a girl. He responded by beating her up so badly she died.
Again, this is just some of the terrible deaths our Trans fam have experience. For more info, please go here
