Lives Lost to Fatal Anti-LGBTQ and Intimate Partner Violence in 2018

Though we strive to share stories of joy and resiliency, we must also mourn those we have lost to violence, and hold their lives in our memory as we continue to fight violence in our lives and in our communities. We mourn the lives that our communities have lost in 2019 and before, and send love and light to their friends and family.

Below are the names of the lives we have lost to fatal, anti-LGBTQ violence this year so far. Those whose names are marked with an asterisk were lost as a result of intimate partner violence.

Dana Martin, Black transgender woman – Montgomery, AL – January 6. 2019

*Vongell Lugo, cisgender gay man – Washington, D.C. – January 6, 2019

NCAVP receives information about homicides from local organizations, community members, and media accounts. While NCAVP strives to honor people in their identities, the identities listed are based on this information and may not be entirely accurate. It’s important to note that some identities and experiences are often erased in media, particularly bisexual people and gender nonconforming people.
