(Warning: This post discusses the violent death of a Trans child, i.e. the murder of Brianna Ghey, and related topics, including but not limited to — Transphobia, systemic Transphobia, hate crimes, misgendering, deadnaming.

Any links may likewise contain distressing material.)


On 11th February 2023, in Cheshire, UK, a beautiful teenage Trans girl was murdered.

Brianna Ghey was 16 years old, and brutally murdered.

The boy and girl charged with her murder are 15 years old. They are presumably Cisgender (non-Trans.)

I’m going to be careful with what I say in this post

- because I firmly believe everyone deserves the right to a fair trial, and also because contempt of court laws here in the UK limit what can be published about people who have not yet been convicted, in order to avoid prejudicing the case.

And unlike a lot of people on social media, I am a big fan of both not being fined for contempt of court, and doing the right thing by giving everyone the rights that they are entitled to.
