This comes as 32-year-old transgender woman Kourtney Yochum was shot and killed Wednesday in downtown Los Angeles. The head of the housing complex where Yochum lived said, “I’m heartbroken. … Everybody loved her. She was very popular.” Yochum’s killing follows the murder of at least two transgender women in February. Last year, more than 20 transgender women were murdered—the highest number on record.
