Black Trans Man Demarkis Stansberry Killed in Louisiana


Demarkis Stansberry, a 30-year-old black man of transgender experience, was fatally shot Saturday in Baton Rouge, La....

Stansberry’s death becomes the fourth reported transgender homicide this year, after the killings of Monica Loera, Kayden Clarke, and Maya Young.

Two other black trans people, both in Texas — a San Antonio woman named Veronica Banks Cano and a Dallas man named Nino Acox Jackson — died under violent circumstances this year, although details about the cause of death remain unknown. Cano was found deceased fully clothed in a bathtub, and Jackson was found dead in Lake Ray Hubbard.

As with the other three trans homicides this year, the reporting on Stansberry’s death by non-LGBT sources deadnames and misgenders Stansberry, even after his partner of four years, Myesha Brown, told reporters that her late partner identified as male.
