Less than three months into the year, seven transgender women of color have been murdered.

It’s easy to get discouraged in our current political climate. When the news is dominated by travel bans, bias attacks and chaos in our nation’s capital, it’s hard to find a silver lining.

We echoed the audible gasp in the U.S. House chambers Tuesday night when President Donald Trump announced the formation of an office to investigate crimes committed by undocumented immigrants. Trump punctuated this next step of immigration policy with theatrics that involved pointing out four people whose families were victims by undocumented individuals. 


Though nothing had been finalized as of presstime, the Trump administration this week was expected to issue guidance on the treatment of transgender and gender-conforming students — and, not surprisingly, the outcome is not anticipated to be good.

The shifts in our local LGBT community are somewhat of a microcosm of what’s happening on a national level right now.
