Two decades after a Nebraska transgender man was brutally murdered, what has changed in the world of transgender rights?

Parker Marie Molloy | January 02 2014 5:13 PM ET
"Just days before these events, Teena was publicly outed as a transgender man after his birth name was published in the local newspaper following his arrest for forging checks. Apparently enraged to find that their friend was transgender, Lotter and Nissen set out to committ these acts of hate and malice."  --advocate.com

20 Years After Brandon Teena's Death, Trans Rights Still Have a Long Way to Go

I never saw the movie but I've read Brandon's story. Nebraska is one of those states that is a hard nut to crack. I see neglect by the sheriff in the rape case to take Brandon seriously. The two killers were troublemakers so what they did doesn't surprise me. I agree that trans rights has a long way to go and trans folks will need to put differences and egos aside and work on things they all agree on.

My now ex and I both saw the movie , a most disturbing picture. I for one will never be able to understand how these two could simply murder Brandon over the fact that this young man simply wanted what they took for granted .
