Monica Roberts of TransGriot says that 238 victims of anti-trans violence are 238 too many.
Following the discovery of Cemia Acoff, a transgender woman found dead in a pond after being reported missing for little over a month, media is still ignoring both the AP stylebook, which has included guidelines on transgender reporting since 2001, and GLAAD who has demanded fair reporting on transgender issues.
Two instances of anti-transgender murders occurred in Orlando, Florida and Baltimore, Maryland over the last 24 hours. Both were transgender women of color. And when the media doesn't tell their story correctly, it perpetuates misleading stereotypes about transgender people.
As the first African American trans woman to create a news outlet that focuses on trans women of color issues, Monica Roberts, creator of TransGriot, is continuing to raise visibility for black trans women and the everyday challenges they face.
