Thanks for publishing my photo, @Buchtelite (at the University of Akron).
I support college journalism and humans from the future who are changing everything. Another reason I love this century.
To commemorate trans lives, The Buchtelite would like to pay respect to the Ohioans that have lost their lives to anti-trans violence. Below is a list of some trans individuals who have died within the past few years. This is by no means a complete list, as LGBTQ hate crimes often go unreported. If you know a person who lost their life due to anti-trans violence and would like them to be added to this list, please contact [email protected].
