Mo(u)ning in progress –

The mourning has not ended yet – another Black Lesbian, murdered, mutilated. Her name is Gift Makau. Like other Black Lesbians and Transgender people before her,

Her body bore the marks of loathing. A wire hanger, a hosepipe; the details of what was done with them do not bear repeating.
