Cemia “CeCe” Acoff was murdered. She was yet another transgender woman killed then victimized again in the media, this time the Cleveland Plain Dealer, with its offensive, insensitive, trans-phobic coverage of her death. CeCe wasn’t the first and probably won’t be the last victim of trans and homophobia. Our transgender community continues to represent a higher proportion of hate violence, intimidation and discrimination. Trans women are disrespectfully, misidentified in the media following violent attacks and trans men are often invisible in conversations about hate violence. The attacks on our transgender community aren’t always by unidentified strangers in dark alleys and back streets. Discrimination takes place in the lives of transgender people every day in every area i (most recently in the news was Arizona’s Controversial 'Transgender Bathroom Bill.' Monica Roberts, the Trans Grio, and Carter Brown, director of Black Transmen, Inc. CWT4R, Ina, Michelle and Terry Boi discuss the “T” in LGBT.
