The Daily Dot, 2/12/2015

When activists gathered on the steps of San Francisco’s City Hall to mourn and protest violence against transgender women of color on Tuesday, they had a list of four trans women of color who have been murdered since the beginning of the year. An hour into the protest, activist Isa Noyola took to the microphone to announce a fifth: Penny Proud, a 21-year-old black trans woman, had been shot and killed the night before, in New Orleans.
