Sad news today. Another beautiful Transgender has been shot in Southeast Memphis at July 1st. She went by the name of Ebony was just 20 years old.
Ebony's mug-shot, taken during a previous arrest for prostitution, shows a beautiful young African-American woman, with reddish streaks in her long blonde hair, arched brows, perfectly applied eyeshadow and lip liner and a gold necklace with tiny butterflies on it.
The most probable reason that led to her death is certainly that she ran across a man who wanted female company. And he thought he had a beautiful young lady. And in the midst of the moment, he found out Ebony wasn't a woman and got mad and shot her.
Another case of “gay panic” that we reported earlier about in the Gwen Araujo Story.
