British Trans Tube Tragedy

In London our British trans cousins are dealing with a horrific situation in which 63 year old transwoman Sonia Burgess was pushed to her death at 6:30 PM local time yesterday under a London subway Piccadilly Line train while awaiting its arrival at the Kings Cross Station.

34 year old Nina Kanagasingham has been charged with her murder and as of yet, it is not being investigated according to Pink News UK as a hate crime.

Ms. Burgess was a civil rights attorney who leaves behind three adult children and grieving colleagues at her law firm.

And once again, the list of names we'll be reading for the upcoming TDOR ceremony grows.
