Key player in Gwen Araujo Justice For Victims Act passage interviewed
On TransFM, Christopher Daley, Director of the Transgender Law Center (TLC) and the one of the key players behind the passage of the Gwen Araujo Justice for Victims Act, was interviewed for the show The Radical Trannies (an MP3 of the podcast is here — for me, even with a high speed connection the podcast was a slow download). The actual interview by Ethan St. Pierre begins at point 1:37 in the podcast.
Chris Daley quote from the interview:
I can’t emphasize enough just the amount or good that [Gwen Araujo’s] family has done and have created out of this tragedy. And, you know, I always feel I have to emphasize when I say stuff like that there’s not a person in this state that would not trade every positive thing that happened out of Gwen’s murder to have her back and not be murdered. But I do think what’s powerful out of the reality that she was murdered was the way in which people responded.
