On the afternoon of Saturday Feburary 11th, Brianna Ghey, a 16 year old trans girl, was brutally murdered. Brianna was deeply failed by those who should’ve protected her and now no one will see the beautiful woman she was destined to become.

It is not enough to just stand by and “not be transphobic”, we need real allies actively fighting against the systematic eradication of transgender individuals. Brianna wasn’t the first soul to come to this tragic end, and it’s down to all of us to make sure these atrocities never happen again.

Trans rights are human rights, and we aren’t going anywhere.
