Welcome to Stonewall Spotlight Episode 13 and to our our 2-part series: Trans Lives Matter. This month, Marcus sits down with Khloe Perez, Manager for Transgender Programs and services at Bienestar and local Trans Rights Activist who was one of the individuals assaulted at Las Perlas this year. We just observed the Transgender Day of Remembrance on November 23 and a new report from Transrespect Versus Transphobia Worldwide says 331 trans and gender-diverse people were murdered worldwide between October 2018 and September 2019. Brazil had the highest number of these hate crimes with 130 killings reported. Mexico had 63 and the U.S. reported 30. In addition, 3,317 trans and gender-diverse people have been murdered globally since January 2008. These episodes are dedicated to giving a voice to our Trans brothers and sisters.
