The arrest of Tyrone Kemp on a malice murder charge came three weeks after Troy “Tee Tee” Dangerfield was found dead in her car outside the South Hampton Estates in College Park on July 31. “Our family would like to express their significant gratitude to the College Park police department and the detectives who worked Tee Tee’s case,” Dangerfield’s family said in a statement to Channel 2.“This arrest helps bring some closure to our grieving family.” According to the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, transgender and queer civil rights organization, at least 22 transgender people were killed in the United States in 2016, the most recorded by the Human Rights Campaign.

I have no interest in that.’”The next time Richards met a man, she didn’t disclose, writing that it was “incredibly stupid and dangerous and, most of all, self-destructive” to not do so, but that she pushed forward anyway out of pain and anger—because the rejection from Jim had pushed her to a place where she “really didn’t care in that moment.”That is exactly the kind of raw, painful experience that transgender people can’t share publicly without feeding into the stereotype of the “deceptive transsexual”—or being accused of trying to shame those who would reject us based on our gender history.It was obvious to me even then that these were not gay men. If these lobby men wanted to have sex with other men, Atlanta had over a dozen gay bars at their disposal—and yet they were here in this hotel on the edge of the city.But I never had the sort of experiences with men that transgender advocates like Laverne Cox or Janet Mock have written about because I was exclusively interested in women.It was a point that required a thousand characters of text to express properly.She was raising the controversial but obvious idea that, as humans, our romantic preferences and our prejudices don’t exist in separate bubbles.
What I do have is sympathy for those in my community who are still finding love—and who can’t even talk about it without risking being targeted by transphobic elements on the far-right.
