Baltimore trans women on edge after two murders – by Michael K. Lavers

The unsolved murders of two transgender women of color in Baltimore in recent weeks have left the city’s trans residents on edge.

A member of Black Transmen, a Dallas-based advocacy group that works in Baltimore and D.C., who asked the Washington Blade to remain anonymous because of safety concerns, said during an interview on Monday that some trans women with whom he has spoken are afraid to leave their homes after police officers found Mia Henderson’s body near Lake Ashburton on July 16.
