On May 15, 2017, Vallum became the first person convicted of a hate crime for killing a trans person and was sentenced to 49 years. While his action was unforgivable, he was surrounded by people who found it inconceivable that a straight man would willingly be with a trans woman.

What I’m really seeking is affirmation of my womanhood, and this is the most available means of doing it.Women like Mercedes Williamson, a 17-year old trans girl living in Alabama.
