& # 39; We hope that this tragic act will raise awareness of the continued discrimination and intimidation of the LGBTQ community. & # 39;

Stuckey's death follows the shooting of Zoe Spears, 23, who was murdered last month in a suburb of Maryland bordering Washington DC.
One of the most striking transgender murders was Muhlaysia Booker, who was shot in Dallas in May, just a few weeks after a viral video of her was beaten up.
