Rest In Peace, Paige
While today is a happy day for me, it's tempered with the sadness that a young transwoman in Chicago will not get the chance to experience her 50th birthday, much less her 25th, 30th or 40th ones because some waste of DNA callously took her life..
Paige Clay is being buried today, so Chicago rainbow family, if you can, pay your respects to her later this evening.
As a gentle reminder, it will be held at the Acklin Funeral Home, 1325 W. 87th St. in Chicago. The wake will run from 3-4 PM CDT with the funeral services commencing shortly after the wake from 4-5 PM CDT
One of the things I want to see happen along with my trans brothers and sisters is witnessing the person who committed this crime be brought to justice.
