Kiah Loy Lawson


Kiah Lawson, a former boyfriend of prominent Portland real estate developer and political fundraiser Terry Bean, was arrested in Portland. Lawson, 25, was arrested in connection with the same alleged crimes that prompted Portland police to arrest Bean: allegations of sodomy in the third degree and sexual abuse of a 15-year-old boy in Lane County last year.

Transgender Day of Remembrance #tdor @gwenners

The Transgender Day of Remembrance is an event created by Gwen Smith held each year on November 20. The event raises awareness of violence against transgender people. It misses, however, the opportunity to create solidarity with Women by failing to note that it is Men who commit violence against transgender people in overwhelming numbers.

We look forward to the day when transgender activists are willing to speak honestly about the perpetrators of violence against transgender people. We have been heartened in recent years by a growing recognition that it is primarily transgender Women of color, some of whom engage in prostitution with Men, who are killed by Men.
