Washington, DC: Memorial to transgender victim burned

Imagine a world where gender expression is not only tolerated but honored. Sadly, that world does not exist today.

On the corner of 61st and Dix Street NE, Lashai McLean was murdered not too long ago. Friends and supporters adorned a tree near the scene of her murder with a big teddy bear and flowers — a memorial to that victim.

It’s a memorial no longer — it’s been burned up. The only thing that remains are charred flowers and some parts of a teddy bear.

Long-time transgender activist Earline Budd helped created that memorial.

Police MAY investigate the crime as bias related.
