Her death is at least the 12th violent death of a transgender or non-binary person in Friends and family are remembering Rayanna on social media. The violence that transgender and Transexual los angeles non-conforming people face is alarming. When I watched that video, I felt her fear and my heart broke for her and her family. Rayanna deserved to live her life to its fullest, not for her life to be cut short. We need action now to protect trans lives and bring this epidemic of violence to an end. HRC recorded 44 deaths of transgender and gender non-conforming people inmore than in any year since we began tracking Transexual los angeles violence in Her family also believes she may have been pushed into the street.
Her family says that Rayanna often faced harassment simply for living her truth as a transgender woman. In an injustice compounding this tragedy, Rayanna was misgendered and misnamed in some media and police reports. Anti-transgender stigma is exacerbated by callous or disrespectful treatment by some in the media, law enforcement and elected offices. In the pursuit of greater accuracy and respect, HRC offers guidelines for journalists and others who report on transgender people. At the state level, transgender and gender non-conforming people in California are explicitly protected from discrimination in employment, housing, education and public spaces.
California also has a hate crimes law that expressly addresses hate or bias crimes based on sexual orientation and gender identity. While the past few years have been marked by anti-LGBTQ attacks at many levels of government, recent weeks have seen some gains that support and affirm transgender people. We must demand better from our elected officials and reject harmful anti-transgender legislation at the local, state and federal levels, while also considering every possible way to make ending this violence a reality.
It is clear that fatal violence disproportionately affects transgender women of color, especially Black transgender women. The intersections of racism, transphobia, sexism, biphobia and homophobia conspire to deprive them of necessities to live and thrive, so we must all work together to cultivate acceptance, reject hate and end stigma for everyone in the trans and gender non-conforming community.
