Transgender Hate Crime: Guilty - April 23rd 2009, 04:10 AM

http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news...17/detail.html

This.. is so unbelievably exciting.

Quote:
This was the first case in the country where a hate-crime statute has been used to prosecute the killing of a transgender person. Colorado is one of the few states with a hate-crime law that covers transgender people.
Like.. I can't explain how excited I am to live in Colorado [For once] where we HAVE hate-crime law that covers Trans people as well as gay/bi and so forth.
I just wanted to share my excitement, and see if anyone else is as excited as me that they actually like.. took it seriously.

I don't think I can adopt kids in Colorado, but at least I'm covered if I get bashed!

I'm used to DC.. where we have specially trained police who handle LGBT hate crimes/etc. That doesn't say as much about the city, though, as it does about the residents committing crimes against LGBT people.

All of our queer events on campus had someone from DC's GLLU (Gay and Lesbian Liaison Unit.) 'Cause once our campus police harassed a trans person for being in the "wrong" bathroom. They got told, though.

We're on our way, people. It can only get better from here. There might be a few setbacks, but overall, we are on our way.

What a bright and sunshiny day!!

That is exciting. Now if only my state had hate-crime laws that covered LGBT people. Hopefully other states will follow Colorado.

I'm excited about this as well. DC seems to really set the bar, Jessie.
