At least two black transgender women have been murdered in New Orleans in recent days. On Monday, police say Ciara McElveen was stabbed to death—only two days after 33-year-old Chyna Gibson was fatally shot outside a shopping center. They are the fifth and sixth reported murders of transgender women this year. Earlier this month, 24-year-old Keke Collier was killed in Chicago, and 23-year-old JoJo Striker was murdered in Toledo, Ohio.
