Sadly this is something that happens more often than many of us are aware of, trans bodies left unidentified in morgues all over the country and certainly around the world. This is for a number of reasons like bad or no media coverage, lack of family and most often lack of identifacation since many times we stray away from carrying anything with our “deadname” or legal identifying information on us.

We will keep you posted with any updates and it is our hope that we can quickly identify her.
