As some of you may be aware of, Kathy Sal, a 35 year old trans Latina woman was savagely attackedin New York’s Jackson Heights neighborhood early Sunday morning and rushed to Elmhurst Hospital in critical condition. Sal was then to the anger of many New York area trans people was disrespectfully misgendered and deadnamed by the New York media.
An anti-trans violence rally was quickly organized and held on Tuesday night, and another #TransLivesMatter anti-trans violence protest is scheduled for this afternoon at 4 PM EST on the corner of 93rd St and Roosevelt Ave in Queens.
Here’s the video commentary from Brooke Cerda concerning the Sal attack
Hope you New York area trans peeps and our allies in the area will show up for the protest rally later today, and may Kathy Sal have a speedy recovery from all her injuries.
I also hope that the waste of DNA who did this to her is expeditiously arrested and justice is served.
