Thank you so much to the US conference on AIDS for inviting me to come and speak!

If you’re not aware of how the #transgender community is affected by gun violence please check out this website

While I was at the USCA I learned that one of the biggest issues the trans community faces when it comes to gun violence is that often times Trans people are misgendered by law enforcement, local media and even family members.
This often can make the the amount of gun violence the trans community faces be reported as significantly less then it actually is. Which is horrifying because of how many hate crimes can go unreported when people are not identified as being trans.
