As the country is protesting for #Black Lives Matter the voice of Black trans people aren't acknowledged and fought for the same. Allies join the call for stand in unity with BlackTransmen On May 27 a transman was murder by a police officer in Tallahassee Florida. The national protest and recognition of his Life and Name have been excluded because of his gender identity. Even in his death the world is still misgendering him to well known for the trans community.
