PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) – December 1, 2012 — Dawn Maher says her daughter, Kyra Cordova, was trying to make a difference in her community.
Being both transgender and biracial, Krya – who also went by Krya Kruz – did not want other young people to suffer the same indignities she had.
“Racism, discrimination, not being able to get a job, a whole gamut of things,” Dawn said.
