I’m thrilled that the monster that killed Angie Zapata has been convicted of both murder and a hate crime. It beat Angie Zapata to death – after having sex with her – because she’s transgender. He referred to her as “it”. This marks the first time in the country that someone has been convicted of a hate crime for a transgendered person’s murder. You can read more about the case here. I’m saddened that we even need this law, but I’m glad that it’s being taken seriously.
I think I need a drink.
