Trans woman who survived after a brutal attack shares her story


59-year-old transgender woman named Holly Fields answered a knock at her front door on Friday, only to be confronted with four men and a woman. They immediately started to beat her and she begged them to leave her alone. She was afraid to die. She was left with four cracked ribs and bruising on her body following the attack, which also saw the attackers subject Holly to a barrage of homophobic and transphobic abuse. Paramedics treated her at the scene, before taking her to Blackpool Victoria Hospital. Now she is afraid to leave her apartment. She does not sleep well and does not eat properly. The big stress led to heart problems. A police spokesman said: “We were called to an address at around 7.10pm on March 10. A woman had been assaulted. She had opened the door to four men and was punched by them several times. We have not identified any suspects at this stage and no arrests have been made.” The victim describes the attackers as middle-aged British men, although she admits that she could not look at them attentively as they were attacking her.
