Eyricka Morgan New Brunswick NJ Transgender woman stabbed to death


Originally reported as the murder of a man the New Brunswick Patch’s updated article Boarding House Victim was Transgender Woman and Advocate, Friends Say properly identifies her as a transgender woman.

Eyricka attended a Queer Newark’ Conference in 2011 and was interviewed by the school’s media illustrating how hard it can be for LGBTQI youth in urban areas:

Eyricka Morgan, 23, a transgender Newarker and Rutgers student, remembers when family members told her “all gay men have AIDS’’ and forbid her from dressing like a woman. “I had to make a decision. Either I be myself or let others control me. So at 14 or 15, I packed up all my stuff and I left.’’

I had the pleasure of meeting Eyricka Morgan at @RutgersLGBT last year, and am beyond heartbroken http://t.co/DYB7NBQl0s #TWoC #girlslikeus
