His friends say he was not transgender

Anthony Torres, an activist, artist and DJ who is known as Bubbles, was reportedly shot and killed on the same block as the New Century strip club on Larkin and Myrtle streets around 3 a.m., according to his attorney Jim Reilly.

This is a hate crime. The details are still coming out… For a transgender activist to be gunned down on [his] own street shouldn’t stand and won’t stand.

Too many

Last Saturday in Waxahachie, TX, Gwynevere River Song reportedly got into an argument with another adult in her home, which led to that other person shooting Song to death. We have no idea what the argument concerned, but we do know that Song was a transgender woman. The assailant was also injured during the shooting and he was transported to a hospital.

[The deceased] remained inside the residence and succumbed to injuries.

On Monday Tee Tee Dangerfield, a 32-year-old Atlanta resident became the sixteenth transgender person known to be murdered this year. Dangerfield was found in her car near an apartment complex in College Park suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. She was rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital but did not survive.

At this time, we have no information that points to the shooting being the result of our victim being transgender.
