Trans activist shot dead after Christmas night out. She’s the 51st trans person killed in 2021

Ke’Yahonna Stone, a Black trans woman, was fatally shot outside of a bar in Indiana, America.

Stone was taken off life support and died Tuesday (28 December).

The 32-year-old was shot in the head early morning Sunday (26 December), having spent Christmas night out celebrating with friends after returning home to Indiana for a new job with a trans healthcare advocacy group.

Stone had been living in Chicago, working as a warehouse picker for Amazon, and had come back to Indiana to begin working for the Trans Solutions Research and Resource Center.

After a fight erupted outside the bar, Stone was shot while attempting to break it up, friends said.

Police responded to reports of gunfire at the Epic Ultra Lounge parking lot at around 3am, WISH-TV reported. First-responders rushed Stone to a local hospital at 5:30am.

Ke’Yahonna Stone is the 51st trans person violently killed in the US this year.
