Jaquarrius Holland is the 7th Transwoman killed in 2017 and the forth in the past week.

She is the third Transgender woman murdered in the conservative state of Louisiana, following Chyna Gibson and Ciara McElveen, both of New Orleans. Holland was from Monroe.

As with the aforementioned victims, Holland has continuously suffered at the hands of negligent misgendering from the family, in the media and even on a GoFundMe page, set up by her friend, to assist with funeral costs.

What a tremendously sad day as we sit and watch our beloved Trans family continue to be killed, forced into gender compliance and denied their dignity even in the wake of their untimely deaths.

Rest in peace, lovely lady.
