Bailey Reeves Death, Obituary : Transgender Woman killed While Leaving a Party.
The LGBT family are paying tributes on social media to Bailey Reeves who was murdered why leaving a party in Baltimore.
We’re tired of writing posts like these. You both deserved better, Bee Love and Bailey Reeves.
All of us have a responsibility to stop the violence.
Trans women deserve our respect, dignity, and love every day, not just attention when we are murdered.https://t.co/W8ccR5fB3u

We learned of the passing of deceased from the following tributes posted on Facebook.
Her name is Bailey Reeves….a transgender young woman, 17, killed the other night while leaving a party. While it is unknown if her status as a member of the #LGBTQ community had something to do with her death, the facts remain the same- a female, teen, shot and killed, again. And it was only 8pm.
Are we tired yet? I know this is awful to talk about, but we must amplify the victim’s voice, because they can no longer advocate for themselves.
The number of cowards on the street, who have time and time again shown a reckless disregard for people’s lives is staggering.
Sadly, we’ve become much more “suspect centered” than “victim centered”. Excuses and that big bad word- accountability or lack thereof, continue to contribute to this aggressive, relentless, and suffocating violence.
We need to pay close attention to this case. Hare met with violence is completely unacceptable and we all should do our part to hold the offender accountable.
Bless you, Bailey, and bless her family and friends.
