Gwynevere River Song is the 17th recorded murder of a trans person in the US this year. The 26-year-old transfeminine non-binary person was shot to death in Texas. “Upon arrival, deputies and medics rendered aid to the injured male. American Medical Response transported the man to the hospital. [The deceased] remained inside the residence and succumbed to injuries,” Fitzgerald said. The victim’s mother is holding a memorial service on August 21 and has invited the trans community to pay their respects at 2 pm at the Wayne Boze Funeral Home. The number of trans people killed in 2017 is already higher than ever,
although the year is not ending yet. Most victims are transgender women of color.
