Two Transgender Women Murdered In Cleveland

Two transgender women were killed in Cleveland, Ohio in two consecutive days. Betty Skinner, a 52 year old disabled woman, was found dead in her apartment with head injuries. The next day Brittany Stergis, 22, was found in her car dead from a gunshot wound to the head. There have been no arrests in either case. The news media, as usual, mispronounced the victims' name, referring to their male names instead of their female names.

I understand the fear and concern of the Cleveland transgender community. If anyone has any information, please call the local authorities.
