This is the second trans woman to be killed by a gun in a motel room in 2018.

Celine Walker, 36, was found shot to death in a motel room in Jacksonville, Florida in February.

She was pronounced dead on February 4, meaning that she was the second trans woman to be killed within a week.However, police reports misgendered Walker and used her dead name meaning initial reports did not recognise her trans identity and caused the announcement of her death to be delayed by over a week.

Florida authorities have been slammed for misgendering Walker.

2018 has already shown an alarming rate of deaths, with 2018 set to surpass 2017’s staggeringly high rate of trans deaths and killings.

35-year-old Tonya Harvey was shot to death on Shepard Street in Buffalo, New York.

Christa Leigh Steele-Knudslien, who founded the Miss Trans America pageant, and Viccky Gutierrez, were burned to death in Los Angeles.

Viccky Gutierrez was brutally killed on the morning of January 10.

2017 saw one of the highest rates of trans deaths, with over 250 reported deaths of trans and gender non-conforming people worldwide.

Many deaths of trans and gender non-conforming people go unreported. When the deaths are reported, trans people are frequently misgendered in reports, making it especially hard to correctly count the number of deaths in a given year.
