At least thirty people were killed last year in the United States either because of their gender identity or H-I-V status according to a report released yesterday.

The report’s authors found an eleven percent increase in murders of Queer-identified and H-I-V positive individuals over the previous year.

KBOO reporter Ross Freeman Levin spoke with Chai Jindasurat from the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs, who co-authored the report.
