Trans people killed

These lists are intended to list trans people who have been killed, whether by physical assault, state action, denial of medical care, or suicide, where the victim’s trans status is apparently involved. May they all rest in power. Given the nature of this content, readers are reminded that they may call the Trans Lifeline in the US and Canada, Switchboard in the UK, or a local crisis hotline or webchat in any country.

If you are aware of a name missing from this list, or details missing about a name that is on the list, please contact me with information. Particularly, information about trans people killed outside of the United States is especially elusive.
