To cap off last week being one of the worst weeks for trans kind in the US with the passage of the unjust HB 2 and anti-trans legislation percolating in Kansas and Minnesota, comes word out of New York that a 25 year old trans woman was sexually assaulted in the Stonewall Inn.
Yes, the same Stonewall Inn in which trans women jumped off the modern TBLG rights movement and is a national historical landmark
The 25 year old survivor told police she went into a single person stall at 11:40 PM EDT Saturday night and a man barged in behind her claiming he needed to wash his hands. The man then groped the trans woman and sexually assaulted her before running out of the Greenwich Village area bar.
But when you hear right wing fundies, the TERF’s, GOP legislators, FOX Noise and other conservafool media pundits flap their loud and wrong gums to demonize us, it’s trans women who are the predators.
Um no. This is just one concrete example of trans women being the prey, not the alleged sexual predators.
This waste of DNA is being sought by NYPD in connection with the crime. The NYPD Special Victims Division has interviewed the survivor, several witnessed and gotten video sufficient enough to identify the perpetrator of this crime.
Note the sexual predator wasn’t in drag when he committed his heinous crime either.
According to my NYC area trans peeps, the perp also frequents another New York area club called The Hangar.
If you have any information like that which will help speed up the apprehension of this criminal, please call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577 TIPS (8477)
Hopefully this sexual predator he will be sitting in jail soon for his crime, and I’ll keep you apprised of this story as i get mere details.
