NCAVP mourns the death of 22-year-old Tracy Single, a Black transgender woman in Houston, TX whose life was tragically taken on July 30, 2019. Reports of Tracy’s death are making media two weeks following her death thanks to the work of Houston-based journalist and organizer Monica Roberts of TransGriot. In initial reports of the homicide, Tracy was not identified as trans.
The City of Houston is honoring Tracy’s life by displaying the trans pride flag colors on City Hall. If you have any information on her death, local organizers are encouraging folks to call Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
