The killing of Brianna Ghey, a trans teenage girl from Warrington, comes amid a “wider atmosphere of hostility towards trans people, perpetuated through apathy and malice”. Brianna Ghey was stabbed dead on 11 February, and a boy and a girl, both aged 15, have been arrested on suspicion of murder. Police are exploring all lines of enquiry, including it being transphobic hate crime. The facts surrounding the case are still being established as the investigation continues, but what’s clear is that urgent action is necessary to protect trans youth.
