Ohio Murder Shines National Spotlight On LGBT Violence: Kendall L. Hampton, a 26-year-old gender non-conforming person, was found dead in Cincinnati late Saturday night.

The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs is calling attention to the fatal shooting of Kendall L. Hampton, a gender non-conforming person who had allegedly engaged in acts of sex work.
The 26-year-old victim was discovered in the parking lot of a Cincinatti convenience store last Saturday, reported FOX19. Hampton was pronounced dead later that night at the city’s University Hospital. Police are currently searching for the gunman.
The NCAVP, along with the Buckeye Region Anti-Violence Organization, is working to determine if gender identity or race were motivators in the crime. Apart from Hampton, the organization has learned of the murders of eight people this year who identified as transgender or were gender non-conforming.
According to a recent report by NCAVP, 87% of the 30 reported hate murder victims in 2011 were LGBT people of color. The organization encourages those affected by violence to contact their nearest anti-violence program, which may be found on its website.


To contact police regarding Kendall Jackson, call (513) 352-3040.





Wow. From the report:

Including Kendall Hampton, NCAVP has learned of nine murders of transgender or gender non-conforming(TGNC) people so far this year. These murder victims include  Deoni Jones in Washington, DC,  Rosita (last name unknown) in Miami, Florida, an  unidentified woman in Riviera Beach, Florida,  Coko Williams in Detroit, Michigan,  Paige Clay in Chicago, Illinois,  Brandy Martell in Oakland, California,  Desean Bowman in Baltimore, Maryland, and Donta Tiffany Godden in Chicago, Illinois.  NCAVP is concerned by the continuing trend of disproportionate violence and murder against transgender and gender non-conforming people of color.
