2: The Murder of Brandon Teena

2: The Murder of Brandon Teena

The murder of Brandon Teena thrust the trans community into the forefront of public discussion. Before the early 1990s, transgender people were a silent minority within society. When the case we'll be discussing had originally received national coverage, the disregard of preferred pronouns and dead naming were not considered offensive and some of the audio clips, legal transcripts, and direct quotes used in creating this episode may reflect that.

This episode will also include unedited audio of a police interview with a rape victim, which may be too distressing for some of our listeners. You've been warned.
