22 Year Old Ohio Trans Woman Stabbed to Death By Father

a horrible honor killing in ohio.

Bri Golec is the 6th transgender individual to die a violent death in 2015. She is the 5th transgender woman to be murdered in Ohio since 2013 along with Cemia Acoff, Betty Skinner, Brittany Kidd-Stergis, and Tiffany Edwards. Another trans woman, Candice Milligan, was brutally attacked in Toledo. It is critical that we talk more openly about family rejection and domestic violence. We’ve lost at least 3, possibly 4 other women this year to assaults by intimates. We also need to talk about the fact that our young people are being slaughtered – almost all of the above deaths were individuals under 30 with a few exceptions. More here.
