The Murder Rate of Transgender Women in the U.S. Isn’t Declining

Lauren Holter writes for Refinery29: “Last year, 27 transgender people were reported murdered in the U.S., the majority of whom were women of color. That was an increase from 2015, when 21 transgender women were killed, making 2016 the deadliest year on record for trans people, according to GLAAD. At this rate, 2017 is likely to reach the same number, if not higher, than 2016.”
