This Type of Violence Isn’t Rare

While McDonald survived her attack, in the past year, many other Black trans women have not. Islan Nettles of Harlem, Eyricka Morgan of Newark, Paige Clay of Chicago, Coko Williams of Detroit and Brandy Martell of Oakland are sobering reminders that Black trans folk , especially transgender women, are extremely vulnerable to violence and homicide.
