Joslyn also revealed that one of the men “held a crowbar to my face and threatened to kill me unless I stripped my shoes off and gave him my jewellery and possessions,” adding: “He said if i was trans he would kill me. He then forced me to hold his hand while he looks for my friends to kill them for being trans.
“Meanwhile men and WOMEN screaming that I’m a man and telling him to beat me. Please help us find them. PLEASE.”
Eden, Jaslene and Joslyn’s followers have since reported the Instagram account, username ‘yoodavion’, which has since been deleted. If you know any details about the attack, make sure to contact the Los Angeles Police Department.
Transgender people – particularly Black trans women – face disproportionate levels of violence and discrimination around the world. In the United States, the number of trans individuals murdered has surpassed the total for all of 2019, and we’re just seven months into the year.
According to the National Center for Transgender Equality, 23 out of 28 of these victims were transgender women, while four were transgender man and one was non-binary.
