Transgender Violence

The coverage is unbelievably low for transgender violence and it's kind of taking my breath away to read what is going on right now.

As Duanne Johnson was violently killed several days ago, another murder has taken place.  Last Friday, Moses "Teish" Cannon was shot and killed.

  1. Umm... Actually, Lateisha went by both Lateisha Green and Teish Cannon and identified as a woman. She and her brother (who does id as gay) were shot at because she was trans* and he is gay. Her brother was only grazed by the bullet and was physically fine.
