Montgomery County police have apprehended a man in connection with the recent murder of Zella Ziona, a black trans woman, who reports say knew her alleged killer.
Zella Ziona was shot following an argument in the parking lot of a suburban Washington, D.C. shopping center, and died at an area hospital.
A gay man from North Carolina got the worst wedding present imaginable.
Signaling an uptick in worldwide transphobic violence, South American trans activist Amancay Diana Sacayán was found murdered in Buenos Aires on October 13.
Kevin Harrigan and Philip Williams pleaded guilty to assault and conspiracy charges for the 2014 attack of a gay couple. Kathryn Knott rejected the deal and will stand trial.
The victim told police his attacker threatened to kill him, saying, “Die dirty faggy."
Police contend the trans woman's brutal beating and shooting death was the result of a robbery, not a hate crime.
