#Justice4Layleen Repost @voguemagazine ・・・ At least 11 black trans women have been killed in the United States in 2019 alone. Layleen Cubilette-Polanco Xtravaganza's death occurred during New York City’s biggest #Pride month celebration ever, and against a backdrop of violence and neglect at Rikers Island. Her passing has not only touched her family and the ballroom community of which she was a part, but has contributed to national outrage over the mistreatment and abuse of trans women of color. A month later, in New York, Layleen’s older sister, Melania Brown, those who loved Layleen, and some who did not know her at all are trying to ensure her life—and death—are remembered; tap the link in our bio to read how they are mourning and organizing.

We made a conscious decision today to only allow trans people to speak at the rally for Layleen. The only folks who weren’t trans who were on the mic were family and legal representation. Thanks to Kimberly Mckenzie from @sylviariveralawproject and the AVP board for speaking. #Justice4Layleen
