  1. Another sister lost to bigotry and hatred!! We must stand up to this bigotry and fight for our rights and acceptance!!

  2. This is absolutely appalling and way too close to home. I classify myself more a CD, and don’t plan on transitioning fully, but I do indeed identify with TG and also live in the FL area, not too terribly far from Orlando. Very scary stuff.

  3. I do not know Ashley personally. I truly hope her killer is found soon. Too many of these crimes pertaining to the G.B.L.T. community goes under the rug and unsolved! Who cares what she does or is? She is still human! I am Wiccan; I ascribed and anointed a white candle with her name and three other words, Peace, Justice, and Hope. My hope is that hope finds a way. I also burned incense periodically ringing a bell, while praying for the peace of her family and closest friends, that justice will prevail in her untimely death, and that hope will be found.
