Yes, lives of all trans people of all color do matter. Specifically trans women seem to be in a lot of danger.
I read a report that black trans women are way more often killed than white trans woman, because many black trans women work in the sex for sale business. Their number is so high in this field, because it is very often the only way they can get enough money together to pay the very high cost of transition.
We know that it is hard for white trans women to make ends meet, and most of us have or have a decent job. Most black trans women were poorly paid prior to transition and almost all of them lost their sole source of income once they came out. Selling sex is their only way to continue to transition.
Forcing people to do this, shows again how wrong the health care system in the US is.
Yes trans lives matter, no matter which color we have!


Hugs

The shooting death by police in the US is absolutely criminal. During the entire year 2019 police shot 1,536 people in the US. at the same time, 6 people were killed by police in the entire European Union, which has about 450 Million people living in it, comapred with about 330 million in the US.

It seems to be pretty clear to me that something is going wrong with the police force in the US! With a population of about 120 million more than the US, only 6 people are killed by police over there!

I think finally equality is going to be one of the new norms. No longer can our government ignore these basic rights. They can no more survive this better than we can.
