  • By now, you’ve surely heard about the suicide of Leelah Alcorn, the transgender teen from Ohio who ended her life due to her parents’ refusal to accept her identity and the hopelessness she saw ahead of her. Her suicide note, which was widely circulated and offered her story, has been taken down from her Tumblr, but can be found at the end of this article.
  • #RealLiveTransAdult is a hashtag where trans people are sharing their stories of survival and lives well-lived.
  • On what justice for Leelah Alcorn would actually look like in a culture of transmisogyny, and why we need to examine our own assumptions and listen to the voices of trans* people around us.
  • Related, an older piece on the death of Islan Nettles and the need for cisgender people to combat daily violence against trans women of colour.
  • Heartbreak in Edmonton, where domestic violence has destroyed a family and shocked a community.
  • The year in review from Two Row Times: some notable events for Indigenous people
