LTA Statement on the Death of Chyna Gibson

Last night, Chyna Gibson, a New Orleans native who had returned from California to celebrate Mardi Gras, was shot to death in New Orleans. She is reportedly the fifth trans woman Рand the fifth trans woman of color Рkilled so far this year in the US. At all times, but especially times like these, the work of supporting, empowering and defending trans people necessarily includes unwavering commitments to anti-racism and solidarity.

Rest in power, Chyna Gibson.
