Equality Hub, 1801 Reynolds Ave, North Charleston, SC
Monday, July 22, 2019, 8 – 9pm

“AFFA, Charleston Pride, We Are Family, Charleston Area Transgender Support, Charleston Black Pride, SC Equality and other community leaders are holding a vigil in memory of Denali Berries Stuckey on Monday, July 22, 2019, at 8:00pm at the Equality Hub (1801 Reynolds Avenue, North Charleston).  All friends, family and allies of the transgender community are invited to attend.

Yesterday we received the tragic news that one of our black transgender sisters was murdered early in the morning on Saturday, July 20.  As is too often the case, Denali has been misgendered (using pronouns that are not congruent with how a transgender person self-identifies) and dead-named (calling a transgender person by their former name and not the name they chose for themselves) in both police and media reports. Friends of Denali confirm that she identified as transgender and used feminine pronouns.

We want to honor and memorize Denali as she identified herself and lived her life. Please join us.”
