Today there was a victory for a victim who some referred to as “IT”. She was not an “it”.
She was a friend to many.
She was a sister.
She was a daughter.
And she was a woman.
But most of all she was a human being who had the right to live and be a person recognized as the person she was.
Hopefully, this will bring to light the importance of ensuring trans individuals have the same rights as others, including the most basic: the right to live.
